Hi everyone,

I am planning to spend my day answering any questions you might have on the subject of parasitic behavioral manipulation and ants manipulated by fungi of the genus Ophiocordyceps in particular. Next to the things we do know at this point in time, there are also a lot of things we don't know yet. In fact, as a researcher interested in parasitic mind control I have a lot of questions myself. That's why I chose to devote my scientific career to studying this phenomenon :-). I am however curious to see what questions you all might have. They might be questions I can answer in more or less detail at this time, and they might be questions our lab might want to start working on in the future.

This is thus your chance to get actively involved! Go to the IAmA subreddit on reddit.com and Ask Me Anything!
