Conference mensuelle Bordeaux Neurosciences

2 mars 2012 @ 11:30 - 17:00

Conférence par Keith Sillar, Professeur de neurosciences

Résumé :

In this talk I will review current knowledge on the neural circuit that generates rhythmic swimming behaviour in Xenopus laevis frog tadpoles. This has been a valuable model system in which to reveal general principles in vertebrate motor control and it is one of the best understood neural circuits in the animal kingdom. I will cover the initiation of swimming, the maintenance of the locomotor rhythm and how it is terminated. I will also discuss how the circuit is modified and how its output is adapted during development. Finally, I will introduce some new data on a novel form of short term motor memory in which previous network performance dictates future network output.

La conférence est en anglais.
