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.

Data presented will show a unique contribution of astrocytes within the brainste
The right insular cortex is a critical component of a salience network that is thought to mediate interactions between other brain networks involved in externally oriented attention and internally oriented cognition. How these systems reconfigure with development is a critical question for cognitive neuroscience.
We examine the brain processes involved in interactive vocal behaviors, focusing on forebrain circuitry in the songbird and the rodent, and we relate these to emerging human studies that employ a range of methods to manipulate and monitor cortical areas relevant for speech.
Reproduction is governed by the coordinated secretion of hormones from the brain and pituitary. These hormones, GnRH and LH, are released in discrete "pulses", whose unique pattern is regulated by numerous factors. Mechanisms by which endocrine and brain signals modulate reproductive hormone pulses in mouse models will be discussed.
