Chemical synaptic transmission serves a crucial function in the nervous system by mediating transmission and integration of information carried by electrical signals in nerve cells. We are taking a forward genetic approach using the model system, Drosophila melanogaster, to investigate the in vivo molecular mechanisms of synaptic transmission.
