Alex Kolodkin

Alex Kolodkin

Alex Kolodkin is a neuroscientist whose laboratory works to understand how neuronal connectivity is established, maintained, and modulated.  The Kolodkin Lab is currently investigating how families of invertebrate and vertebrate guidance cues orchestrate neuronal wiring during embryogenesis and later in neural development, using Drosophila and the mouse as model systems. Alex’s team is currently investigating how laminar organization is established in the mammalian visual system, the underlying biochemical basis for guidance cue receptor responses to various guidance cues, and how classical guidance cues influence synaptogenesis and synaptic plasticity.
