We study how the nervous system controls behavior by analyzing the simple neural network that controls chemotaxis, a form of spatial orientation behavior, in the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans.

Current and future research will seek to determine (1) the mechanism of chemosensory signal transduction in C. elegans, (2) the behavioral and electrophysiological roles of ion channels in chemotaxis neurons, and (3) how the chemotaxis network integrates information through time.
