Our lab seeks an understanding of mechanisms by which the neural circuitry is maintained in healthy and diseased organisms. Our main thrust has been to characterize the kinetics of nerve filopodial extension, retraction, and turnover using high resolution video microscopy and a mathematical model of this sensing activity. More recently, we have employed microfabrication to create precise patterns of guidance molecules on a substrate and to monitor nerve growth cone behavior.
