To produce adaptive behaviors, neurons must maintain robust intrinsic excitability. However, the genetic networks that enable intrinsic neuronal homeostasis remain mostly unknown. The Ben-Shahar lab explores the molecular processes that maintain neuronal robustness at different timescale by using the power of Drosophila neurogenetics.
