Our guest this month is Dr. Graeme Davis, professor in the department of biophysics at UC San Francisco. Dr. Davis hopes to solve the question of how the brain remains stable as it changes. His lab uses fly genetics to determine important genes involved in maintaining stable neural activity. Listen as Dr. Davis describes how one of these genes, dysbindin, is involved in stabilizing neural function and may have important implications in schizophrenia.
More on the Davis Lab's research.
