Proprioception, an animal’s sense of the position of its own body, is essential for almost all coordinated movement across the animal kingdom. However, despite its importance, we know little about the neural processing underlying limb proprioception. The Agrawal lab studies the neural computations underlying proprioceptive control of movement by combining Drosophila circuit neuroscience with quantitative behavior and comparative studies. 

Specific research questions in the lab include:
