Title: A modular logic of coordinated movements

GroƟhaderner Str. 2

Host: Julijana Gjorgjieva

Most behaviors require moving multiple body parts. For example, catching a ball involves wrist, elbow, and shoulder movements, and looking at a friend calling your name entails head and eye movements. How the brain coordinates several body parts with differing ranges of motion and reference frames in order to construct goal-directed behaviors is unknown. My lab investigates this question by applying neural ensemble recordings, perturbations, and modeling to a suite of mouse innate behaviors we have identified. In this talk, I will present findings that reveal a surprising network architecture underlying coordinated movements.
