1. We are seeking students to investigate the development of the earliest axon pathways in the brain in real time using transgenic fish with fluorescent reporters.
2. In addition we need students to investigate the role of Autism susceptibility genes in development of behaviours in zebrafish and the role of neurodevelopmental genes in neural tube defects in Xenopus.
1. In addition to the topics of the Honours projects we require students to investigate the development of axon connections in the most plastic region of the nervous system, the olfactory system.
