Cornelia I. Bargmann
Torsten N. Wiesel Professor
Lulu and Anthony Wang Laboratory of Neural Circuits and Behavior
The Rockefeller University
Using fixed circuits to build flexible behaviors
Dr. Bargmann will give the 7th Annual Sinauer Associates Lectuer. Her research focuses on how the environment, experience and the biology of the brain interact to shape an animal's behavior. Her lab investigates how neural circuits develop in the nematode C. elegans. She is particularly interested in how genes influence neural pathways and behavior and has a longstanding interest in human genetics and developmental disorders.
