Dr. Bashaw studies how different types of neurons develop and organize into functional circuits. His research program will investigate cellular signaling pathways that determine neuron type and that guide neuronal fibers called axons as they navigate to specific targets in the developing brain. Understanding the complexities of axon guidance signaling will yield important insights into neurodevelopmental disorders and strategies to repair neuronal connections after injury.
