- Dendritic structural plasticity
Department of Molecular Neurobiology, Dendrite Differentiation Group, MPI of Neurobiology, Munich, Germany
Dev Neurobiol 72:73-86. 2012
..Importantly, some fundamental questions such as the functional role of dendrite remodeling and the causal link between structural modifications of neurons and plastic processes, including learning, are still open...

Department of Molecular Neurobiology, Dendrite Differentiation Group, Max Planck Institute MPI of Neurobiology, Munich Martinsried 82152, Germany
Curr Biol 20:1938-44. 2010
..These data provide clear evidence for activity-dependent organization of a circuit within the adult brain of the fly...
- Fascin controls neuronal class-specific dendrite arbor morphology
Dendrite Differentiation Group, Department of Molecular Neurobiology, MPI of Neurobiology, 82152 Munich Martinsried, Germany
Development 139:2999-3009. 2012

- Synaptic organization in the adult Drosophila mushroom body calyx
Department of Molecular Neurobiology, Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, 82152 Munich, Germany
J Comp Neurol 517:808-24. 2009
..These findings represent an important basis for the functional analysis of the olfactory pathway, including the formation of associative olfactory memories...
- Slit and Robo regulate dendrite branching and elongation of space-filling neurons in Drosophila
Dendrite Differentiation, Department of Molecular Neurobiology, Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, Munich, Germany
Dev Biol 324:18-30. 2008
..We propose that Slit, through Robo, provides an extrinsic signal to coordinate the growth rate and the branching level of space-filling neurons, thus allowing them to appropriately cover their target field...
