ABOUT

Neural circuits for visuomotor behavior

Feierstein Lab

How does our brain use information to select an appropriate behavior? I am interested in how brain circuits process and use sensory information from the environment, together with information about the animal’s internal state, to choose a suitable motor plan.
To answer this question, I use zebrafish larvae as a model system. Working in close collaboration with the Orger lab, and using custom-built microscopes and high-speed behavior tracking, we can record the neuronal activity of whole brains while monitoring the behavior of the fish larvae. Combining imaging, behavioral analysis, and manipulation of activity, we aim to understand the processing occurring in brain areas and how they contribute to behavior.
