Summary Chemogenetics is a powerful new approach enabling modulation of specific groups of neurons in order to understand their function. This project will lay the foundation for a new excitatory chemogenetic approach. Using cell-based approaches you will be involved in characterising the specificity of the insect allatotropin-allatotropin receptor system in mammalian neurons.
