We have an ongoing collaboration with Gwyneth Card’s Lab at Janelia, in which we are further characterizing the neural networks underlying landing responses in Drosophila.
Hannah Soyka (BSc Student)
Hannah is working closely with Sander on characterizing the integration of sensory stimuli by modulatory neurons using patch-clamp recordings.
Nicole Enslinger (BSc Student)
Nicole is working closely with Tina on characterizing modulatory neurons in the fly brain by combining calcium imaging experiments with optogenetic stimulation.
Federico C. Milani (Intern)
Federico is combining theoretical modeling approaches with patch-clamp recordings and is working on a Hodgkin-Huxley model of modulatory neurons in Drosophila. For our modeling efforts, we are collaboring with Sabine Fischer (CCTB, Würzburg) and Lorenzo Fontolan (HHMI, Janelia Research Campus).
