Wiring The Gut'S Nervous System: Formation And Maturation Of Synapses

Grant number: DP130101596 | Funding period: 2013 - 2016



This project aims to determine how nerve circuits controlling intestinal functions develop; specifically how communication between specific nerve cells is established once they appear in the embryonic gut. It will fill a major hole in existing knowledge of mechanisms regulating the development of normal digestive behaviours.
