Keene Lab

Laboratory of Neurogenetics and Behavior

Animals are highly tuned to sense changes in both internal and external environments and adapt their behavior accordingly. Hungry animals reduce sleep, increase foraging behavior, and prefer high-calorie foods. Our primary focus is to identify the genetic basis of this shift in behavioral choice in the fruit fly and Mexican cavefish.
