Description: NIH Neuroscience Series Seminar

Robert Whitney Newcomb Lecture

All sensory perception and every coordinated movement, as well as feelings, memories and motivation, arise from the bustling activity of many millions of interconnected cells in the CNS. The ultimate function of this elaborate network is to generate behavior. The goal of Dr. Baier lab’s research is to understand how animal brains integrate the information about sensory inputs and internal state into behavioral responses. They use zebrafish as their experimental model, employing a diverse array of methods. Their approaches take advantage of the feature that zebrafish larvae are optically transparent and genetically accessible. The goal of their research is to understand how neuronal circuits convert sensory inputs into behavioral responses.
