Space & Motion
The long-term ambition of the lab is to understand, at the circuit and at the genetic level, how animals create a representation of space that allows the execution of target-oriented movements.
We investigate these questions by using and developing a variety of methodologies. These include mouse genetics, viral strategies for circuit tracing and functional manipulations, in vivo electrophysiology, optogenetics and behavioral analysis.
Our group is part of the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology.
