Cohen is PI for five-year NSF/NIH grant on lamprey locomotion

Professor Avis Cohen (Biology/ISR) is the principal investigator for a five-year project, "An Integrated Locomotion Model for Lamprey Swimming." Dr. Cohen will investigate whether steady locomotion in a predictable environment requires only the neuromechanical system's central pattern generator (CPG) without other input, and whether in an unpredictable environment, sensory feedback combined with strong intersegmental coupling is necessary.

This grant in the National Science Foundation/ National Institutes of Health Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience (CRCNS) program is funded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
