Alan Kay (University of Iowa) is visiting the Nitabach lab where he will be using the fluorescent voltage sensor, Arclight to explore a heretofore inaccessible part of the fly brain. Alan has previously used fluorescent probes to investigate the role of metals in neurotransmission and this is his first foray into fly neurobiology. He last visited the Department of Cellular & Molecular Physiology in 1986 when he helped Walter Boron with a procedure for acutely isolating neurons from rodent brains
