Sleep is a fundamental and evolutionarily conserved behaviour, and the only major behaviour for which the function remains unknown. The goal of our lab is to understand the synaptic and circuit mechanisms underlying sleep and its function in the brain.

Research focus

Sleep is a fundamental and evolutionarily conserved behavior, and the only major behavior for which the function remains unknown.  The goal of our lab is to understand the synaptic and circuit mechanisms underlying sleep and its function in the brain. To address these questions, we employ multi-disciplinary approaches, including Drosophila genetics, quantitative behavior analysis, electrophysiology, functional imaging, as well as neural circuit mapping and manipulation.
