THE GENERATION OF NEURONAL DIVERSITY AND ITS EVOLUTION
In the Drosophila optic lobes, ~200 types of neurons organized as 800 columns process the inputs from 800 unit-eyes. We study how this variety of neurons is generated during development and how connectivity among these neurons is regulated

Coping with mechanical stress: tissue dynamics during development, homeostasis and repair.
 


Abstract:

During growth and development, tissue dynamics, such as tissue folding, cell intercalations and oriented cell divisions, are critical for shaping tissues and organs. However, less is known about how tissues regulate their dynamics during tissue homeostasis and repair, to maintain their shape after development. In this talk, we will discuss how mechanical forces can influen

Common threads in regeneration: mechano-chemical insights from a jellyfish model
How randomly injured animals can appropriately re-establish positional information and control the deployment of repair programs are key questions of regenerative biology. The hydrozoan jellyfish Clytia hemisphaerica has recently emerged as an original model organism for probing repair phenomena, thanks to its remarkable regenerative abilities. Coping with frequent injuries in the planktonic envir
