The Nagel lab uses the fruit fly Drosophila to study how the brain transforms sensory stimuli into motor actions, in particular how neural circuits combine stimuli of different modalities to generate purposeful goal-directed movement.  We use a combination of quantitative behavior, whole-cell 
electrophysiology, genetic manipulations, and computational modeling to investigate this question at behavioral, algorithmic, circuit, and synaptic levels.
