How are proprioceptive signals detected and encoded by neurons?
How is proprioceptive information integrated and transformed in the central nervous system?
How is proprioceptive feedback used to guide movement and behavior?
We make in vivo whole-cell patch clamp recording from genetically labeled neurons.
We use calcium imaging to record from populations of neurons in awake, behaving flies.
We study sensorimotor transformation by quantifying fly behavior.
We use the advanced genetic toolkit of Drosophila to label and manipulate neural circuits.
