"Connecting vision to behaviour in Drosophila", Michael Reiser, Senior group leader at HHMI Janelia Research Campus, at Biological Sciences Building, Room 4223.
Abstract: How nervous systems control behaviour is the main question we seek to answer in neuroscience. Although visual systems have been a popular entry point into the brain, we don’t understand—in any deep sense—how visual perception guides navigation in flies (or any organism). I will present recent progress towards this goal from our lab that begins to fill in gaps in our understanding of how the fly brain processes visual motion to regulate behaviour.
