My research focuses on the understanding of how genes influence brain morphology in health and disease with a focus on corpus callosum disorders. My research group uses mouse genetics to identify novel brain mutant phenotypes caused by genetic manipulations. We have thus characterised a large collection of mouse mutants that unambiguously associates genetic mutations to neuroanatomical features and have pushed this knowledge forward by discovering the role of several genes in the development of the corpus callosum.
