DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER

We use fruit flies as a simple model organism for testing our new sensors. Using OLEDs, we stimulated sensory and motor neurons in fruit fly larvae as well as primary mouse hippocampal neurons. Furthermore, we imaged calcium dynamics in the ventral nerve cord of Drosophila larvae with OLED illumination. Most recently, we developed a smartphone app that allows controlling Drosophila behaviour using smartphone displays.
