EXROP Projects: Julie H. Simpson

Julie H. Simpson


To understand general principles of brain function and organization, Julie Simpson maps neural circuits in the adult fly brain that govern distinct motor behaviors. Her lab uses a range of genetic, neurobiological, and histological techniques to attack this problem at several levels—from genes and neurons to circuits and behavior.
