Academic Background:

2008-presentThe Institute of Life Sciences, Southeast University, Professor

2004-2008Department of Neurobiology, University of MassachusettsMedicalSchool. Postdoctoral Research Fellow

1999-2004Nanjing University, China,Ph.D.

1995-1999Nanjing University, China,B.Sc.

  

Research Interests:

Our lab is interested in the mechanism of neuronal circuit formation, and the correlation between neuronal circuit function and animal behaviors. We use the Drosophilaand mice as models, as they share many characteristics with vertebrate brains. Combined genetics, molecular and cell biological, electrophysiological and behavioral approaches, we are now generating the anatomical and functional maps for the visual circuits and sleep circuit.
