Mark Dombrovski, a graduate student in the Condron lab, has published a paper in "Current Biology" entitled "A Plastic Visual Pathway Regulates Cooperative Behavior in Drosophila Larvae". As stated in the the paper's summary, "Cooperative behavior emerges in biological systems through coordinated actions among individuals. Although widely observed across animal species, the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the establishment and maintenance of cooperative behaviors remain largely unknown. To characterize the circuit mechanisms serving the needs of independent individuals and social groups, we investigated cooperative digging behavior in Drosophila larvae."
