New Paper from Armin's and Katrin's Group: Navigational strategies underlying temporal phototaxis in Drosophila larvae

10. Juni 2021

Maxwell's paper on Drosophila larval phototaxis is out: In this paper we test the ability of Drosophila larvae to navigate virtual luminance gradients, only providing them with temporal brightness cues. We find that animals can integrate brightness information over time during decision-making. Congratulations to an absolutely outstanding undergraduate, Maxwell Zhu, who came up with the experimental paradigm and has done all those experiments. It has been a pleasure working with you!
