Our laboratory is interested in the fundamental programs that regulate glial development and myelination in the developing brain. We study this in two systems.

In the Vertebrate:

Examining the role of neuronal activity in neuronal-glial synapse formation and myelination in the murine forebrain

Determining how neuronal inputs regulate oligodendrocyte development and myelination, using synaptic adhesion proteins to perturb synaptic function

In the Invertebrate:

Investigating how glial diversity forms in development, and how neuronal-glial interactions are important for synaptic function in the optic lobe and vertical lobe
