Dominic Evans

Research Fellow

Dominic is currently a Research Associate in the Branco Lab, having recently completed his doctoral studies with Dr. Branco.

He is investigating how the brain generates defensive behaviours, and in particular, how neurons in the midbrain integrate information about threats and cause animals to flee to safety. Dominic uses a combination of behavioural assays with calcium imaging, activity manipulations and anatomical methods to study these circuits.
