Neural diversity

Neuronal diversity and convergence in a visual system developmental atlas

How neurons are generated and diversified has long puzzled developmental neurobiologists. One of the outstanding process is that it is challenging to observe the earlier and not-yet-diversified progenitors. To overcome this, we devised a neural …

Gene Regulatory Networks During the Development of the Drosophila Visual System

The Drosophila visual system integrates input from 800 ommatidia and extracts different features in stereotypically connected optic ganglia. The development of the Drosophila visual system is controlled by gene regulatory networks that control the …
