My research focus is to understand how changes in monoamine release from varicosities regulate synaptic transmission and behavior in the Dorosophila fly. Our main tool is the body wall of the dorosophila larvae and we use the electrochemical methods for recording of individual exocytotic event in the larvae’s muscles. This is in collaboration with David Kranz from UCLA.
