Ellipsoid Body
Sarah Rara

Sarah Rara is researching human navigation and how it is mediated by video images. In addition to working with the Lab’s advisory board, Rara is continuing her work with Caltech’s Dickinson Lab, where her research initially took shape. The project is called Ellipsoid Body, - a reference to a ring-shaped brain structure within fruit flies that is needed for navigation.
