How do the billions of neurons in your brain change as you mature? How do they grow and form connections? Establishing the right neural morphologies and connectivity is essential for healthy development. This project aims to understand the basic biological mechanisms that determine interactions between neuron number, plasticity and longevity during circuit maturation, in a novel, emerging insect model of neurodevelopment.
