Towards an understanding of spatial memory in Drosophila

Being able to genetically dissect the brain process and structures involved in insect spatial behaviour would be a massive opportunity for our research field.  This research requires the correct behavioural assays to probe spatial behaviour and it is this endeavour that leads Foucaud et al (2010) to develop an analog of the water maze for Drosophila.
