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 a inter-disciplinary approach, employing a broad range of genetic, molecular, cellular, and behavioural tools. There are four main projects in the lab. To learn more about them click on the icons below.
