Tien Luu

Tien Luu joined Thinking Systems as a research fellow studying insect navigation. Previous post-doc experience was in ion channel electrophysiology. One aspect of this theme of the Thinking systems project is to record brain activity from honeybees during navigational tasks. Tien’s research experience is in electrophysiology of ligand-gated ion channels; point-mutagenesis in recombinant GABAA receptors. Her Thinking Systems research goal: electrophysiological recordings from live honeybees, looking at candidate cellular substrates of navigation systems.
