The Chalasani lab uses the nematode (roundworm) Caenorhabditis elegans as a model to understand how neural circuits transform sensory input into behaviors. In the future, Dr. Chalasani plans to extend his lab's studies to zebrafish larvae to test whether vertebrate and invertebrate circuits use similar mechanisms to process information, hoping to gain new insight into how the human brain functions.
