Synopsis: 

Research in the lab aims to identify and characterize factors that direct the assembly and maintenance of neural circuits, and to understand how the organization of these circuits controls specific behaviors. These general issues are examined through the analysis of circuits in the cerebellum important for coordination, movement and motor learning. His lab is exploring mechanisms underlying the development and function of cerebellar circuits using genetics, imaging, and behavioral approaches.
