Welcome

Welcome to the Chalasani lab! We use Caenorhabditis elegans, Danio rerio, and Mus musculus to study how the nervous system integrates changes in external and internal environment to generate behavior. We expect to uncover principles of brain function and develop therapeutics for various human neurological conditions.
