Centre for Cognition in Small Brains

We work on experiments and theory to decode perceptionĀ and actions in the nervous systems of flies and other insects, to better understand the brain.

We search answers to fundamental questions in neuroscience: how do animals see and make decisions? How do entire neural circuits sample, process, store and recallĀ information about the world and use it for adapting behaviours?
