The Blitz Lab is located in Pearson Hall, home of the Department of Biology at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Our research is focused on determining how the nervous system integrates information about the internal and external environment in order to select an appropriate motor output. We are working to identify cellular and synaptic mechanisms of plasticity enabling the flexibility of neural circuits underlying rhythmic behaviors. These questions are being addressed in a model system, the stomatogastric nervous system of the Jonah crab, Cancer borealis. For more information on current projects in the lab, see our Research page.
