"The genetics of neuronal robustness," Yehuda Ben-Shahar, Associate Professor, Department of Biology, Washington University in St. Louis

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.
