    • Sensorimotor structure of Drosophila larva phototaxis 

      Kane, E. A.; Gershow, M; Afonso, Bruno; Larderet, I.; Klein, Mason Joseph; Carter, A. R.; de Bivort, Benjamin Lovegren; Sprecher, S. G.; Samuel, Aravinthan DT (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2013)
      The avoidance of light by fly larvae is a classic paradigm for sensorimotor behavior. Here, we use behavioral assays and video microscopy to quantify the sensorimotor structure of phototaxis using the Drosophila larva. ...
    • Sensory determinants of behavioral dynamics in Drosophila thermotaxis 

      Klein, Mason Joseph; Afonso, Bruno; Vonner, Ashley James; Hernandez-Nunez, Luis; Berck, Matthew E; Tabone, Christopher; Kane, Elizabeth Anne; Pieribone, Vincent A.; Nitabach, Michael N.; Cardona, Albert; Zlatic, Marta; Sprecher, Simon G.; Gershow, Marc; Garrity, Paul A.; Samuel, Aravinthan DT (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2014)
      Complex animal behaviors are built from dynamical relationships between sensory inputs, neuronal activity, and motor outputs in patterns with strategic value. Connecting these patterns illuminates how nervous systems compute ...
    • Spatial and Temporal Organization of Chromosome Duplication and Segregation in the Cyanobacterium Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942 

      Chen, Anna Hang; Afonso, Bruno; Silver, Pamela A.; Savage, David F. (Public Library of Science, 2012)
      The spatial and temporal control of chromosome duplication and segregation is crucial for proper cell division. While this process is well studied in eukaryotic and some prokaryotic organisms, relatively little is known ...
