Motor Learning

Motor Learning
Motor learning in a multisensory environment

Motor control involves one of the most fundamental feature of the brain : translating sensory input to motor output. With a new vestibular virtual-reality platform, we want to monitor neuronal activity throughout the brain, while fish adapt their posture to simulated changes of body parameters or the environment, namely. We will identify the neuronal circuits involved in the behavioural strategies required to adapt to these changes,and quantify network changes using methods from statistical physics.
