By Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience

What is it that defines us, nature or nurture? Michael and Andre sit down with Liqun Luo, Professor of Biology at Stanford University, to discuss the role of genetics and experience in the development of the brain. As a trained geneticist Dr. Luo uses both flies and mice to investigate the development of the nervous system. Learn more about how the olfactory system differs from other sensory modalities and the genetic tools Dr. Luo is developing and using to help investigate the roles genes play in the construction of neural circuits.
