Excited to share our latest work - we use pan-neuronal 2 photon imaging to dissect how the #brain integrates multiple internal states to guide #food #choice! Fantastic work by @Dahaniel who took on this challenging project almost solo! #drosophila biorxiv.org/content/10.110… 1/21 We wanted to know what changes in the brain when animals #crave #foods. How do different internal states interact to change neuronal processing of #food #taste to alter feeding decisions? And can we use neurogenetics to identify causal brain regions driving food choice? 2/21
