Yaksi Group

Our interdisciplinary laboratory is mixture of enthusiastic life scientist, physicists and engineers, whose goal is to understand the fundamental principles underlying the function and development of neural circuits in health and disease. In order to achieve this aim, we use genetically tractable small model organisms, zebrafish and fruitfly. We monitor, dissect and perturb the brain circuits, through a unique combination of functional imaging, optogenetics, electrophysiological recordings, molecular genetics and quantitative behavioral assays.
