We are working to determine if there are structural differences in the brains of flies modeling neurodegenerative diseases such as Frontotemporal Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease in comparison to wild type flies. Our project is a complement to another study our lab is conducting on the metabolic activity of fruit fly models of neurodegenerative diseases. By analyzing cell size, cell pattern, and number of cells, we want to determine if the functional differences found in the metabolic study are mirrored in the structure of fly brains. By connecting structure and function, we hope to further elucidate the pathology of neurodegenerative conditions.
