Neural Circuits

Melibe circuit-no tracesResearchers in the Neuroscience Institute are using a variety of techniques on a variety of different neural circuits to understand the interactions between neurons. These include genetic tools in Drosophila and C. elegans. Intracellular electrophysiology in leeches and sea slugs. Viral tract tracing in mammals. Optogenetics and more.
