Animals exhibit behavioural repertoires that are often innate and result in stereotyped sexual and social responses. Innate behaviours are likely to reflect the activation of developmentally programmed neural circuits. We focus on two innate behaviours in the fruit fly: courtship and carbon dioxide avoidance. We study the underlying circuits using a combined behavioural, genetic, imaging and electrophysiological approach.
