The main goal of the lab is to unravel the neurobiology of innate and social behaviors by identifying molecular mechanisms and their underlying neural circuitry, while in parallel exploring the impact of aggressive interactions on future social behaviors. To this end, we combine the powerful Drosophila melanogaster model system with sophisticated genetics, behavioral assays, machine-learning behavioral scoring, chemistry, immunohistochemistry, and functional imaging.

We are part of the team Interindividual Variability and Emergent Plasticity which aims to investigate the determinants of phenotypic plasticity across different biological scales. We belong to the Research center on Animal Cognition (CRCA) and the Center for Integrative Biology (CBI) in Toulouse, France.
