    Study finds that a mutation in fruit flies impairs fine motor control but leaves gross motor proficiency intact

  • E-cadherin in collective direction-sensing in vivo

    Researchers in Denise Montell’s lab used fruit-fly ovaries to uncover how E-cadherin guides collective cell migration

  • A new study demonstrate how taste preferences can be modified by long-term exposure to a specific diet. The results suggest a general neural mechanism underlying food experience-induced changes in taste preferences.
