Research Summary:


Sensory-controlled, goal-directed motor sequences are crucial for the survival of an animal. We aim at identifying fundamental neural mechanisms that enable an animal to rapidly analyze its sensory environment, to make behavioral decisions and to generate sequences of coordinated motor patterns. We use zebrafish as a neurobiological model to study how these complex neural processing tasks are implemented in the vertebrate visual system.
