Title: Connecting vision to behavior in Drosophila
Abstract: How central nervous systems control behavior is the main question 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 behavior.
