Neurobiology Invited Seminar Series

The Maimon lab aims to understand how brains internally compute and store the value of quantitative variables-like heading angles, spatial distances, time intervals, and event probabilities-and then use these variables to guide behavior. By studying this topic in Drosophila, a classic genetic system, the team's long-term goal is to better understand how molecules, through their effect on cellular electrophysiology, impact memory and cognition.
