Your Responsibilities

The Sweeney Group aims to define the molecular, cellular and neural circuit components that underlie differences in motor behavior, and to explore how such differences arise during an organism’s development. The group uses swimming and limbed organisms including frogs, fish, and mice to address these fundamental questions.
