We investigate structural plasticity and degeneration, regeneration and repair in the central nervous system (CNS). We use the fruit-fly Drosophila for its powerful genetics and in vivo neurobiology spanning from genes, to cells, neural circuits and behaviour. We discover gene networks, fundamental principles and in vivo processes to understand the brain and with relevance for human brain health & disease.
