Neuronal Rhythms in Movement Unit

Volume-EM reconstruction of IO neurons in a mouse

The ultimate aim of the brain is to generate behavior, virtually always enacted through body movements that are deliberate and well-timed. The Neuronal Rhythms in Movement Unit seeks to understand the “master clock” underlying the spatio-temporal coordination of motor activity, through anatomical, electrophysiological, computational, and behavioral viewpoints, with a particular focus on natural locomotion and the olivo-cerebellar system.
