Contextual Modulation of Innate Olfactory Behavior in Drosopila



Time: 10:00-11:00 a.m. May 22, 2014

Venue: Medical Sciences Building B323

Reporter: Jing Wang, Professor, University of California, Division of Biological Sciences


Prof. Wang’s research interests are to elucidate the mechanism of olfaction and he choose drosophila as a model system. His lab uses single-neuro electrophysiology, optical imaging and genetic tools to silence or activate specific neurons in the stereotypic olfactory circuit, helping them studying the synaptic modulation and neural plasticity in drosophila olfactory system.
