Neuronal migration and magnetoreception: The Keays lab aims to understand two biological phenomena: 1) How do neurons migrate in the developing brain??2) How do animals detect magnetic fields? In tackling these two questions we adopt an interdisciplinary approach, employing a wide range of genetic, molecular, cellular, and behavioral tools.
