Neuroscience Graduate Students


ates
Kristin Ates

Kristin Ates is interested in the study of neurological disorders (ex. autism, down syndrome) caused by deficits in neuronal morphogenesis and neural circuit development. She is also interested utilizing the visual circuit in zebrafish as a method to further investigate the cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate neural circuit development
