Institute for Biology I - Straw Lab
The lab of Andrew Straw studies neural circuits and behavior at the University of Freiburg, Germany. By developing advanced technical systems such as virtual reality arenas, they investigate the mechanistic basis of visual behaviors such as navigation in Drosophila: Neural circuits for vision; Engineering tools for quantitative behavior; Mapping neural circuits for visual locomotor guidance in Drosophila; How flies resolve conflicting visual information – cells and models
