The goal of the Keays lab is to answer important questions in sensory and developmental neuroscience. We do this by relying on creative experimental design, that is complemented by a reductionist mindset that pays unrelenting attention to detail.

We are focused on three questions:

1) How do animals detect magnetic fields?

2) How do animals detect electric fields?

3) How do mutations in microtubule associated proteins cause neurodevelopmental disease?

In tackling these questions we adopt a inter-disciplinary approach, employing a broad range of genetic, molecular, cellular, and behavioural tools. To learn more about these three projects click on the icons below.
