We probe molecular mechanisms underlying vertebrate development. One focus is the Extreme Anterior Domain, a facial signaling center that also forms the mouth. We examine the brain ventricular system and ‘basal constriction’, a novel cell shape change in the brain. A major focus is on neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disability and epilepsy, in order to define novel therapeutics.
