Research interests

Our main focus is the development of the vertebrate forebrain, in particular, the  events leading to cell fate specification and organisation of the anterior neural plate into telencephalic and diencephalic territories and later neuronal circuits. We are exploring these events using genetics, molecular biology and cell biology. Although the zebrafish is our principal model organism, a set of experiments in other vertebrates will be undertaken to address evolutionary issues.
