    Molecular Neuroethology


    In an integrated set of studies, our laboratory is using anatomical, cellular, molecular, electrophysiological, genetic and behavioral approaches to more fully understand the biological basis of monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) migration, with a focus on the butterfly's navigational abilities and its ancestral circadian clock.
