Behavioral Neurobiology Laboratory

How does the nervous system control behavior? We will address this question using simple behavioral experiments combined, in some exercises, with microsurgery and electrode recordings in the nervous system. Concepts studied will include CNS plasticity, the role of proprioception in controlling movement, cortical processing and the myth multitasking, sensory resolution by measuring receptive field sizes, activity of simple neural circuits controlling escape from predators, and the effects of neuromodulators on aggression. Animals used are all invertebrates.
