The Kuwada lab is interested in genes that regulate the development and function of neural circuits and the behaviors they subserve. The lab uses zebrafish since they are transparent and experimentally accessible at all stages of development allowing for analysis in living embryos with electrophysiology, Ca2+ imaging, and imaging of fluorescently labeled proteins within neural circuits.
