Animals are usually able to react appropriately to a broad range of conditions. For example, they show mild responses to a low threat in the presence of companions, but have high fear when exposed to threat while alone and in the dark. We are interested in understanding how responses are calibrated to a broad range of conditions. Failure to do so leads to mental disorders. A variety of methods, including imaging, optogenetics and modeling, are used. Experiments are carried out using the larval zebrafish system.
