Decision making and motor control in larvalk zebrafish, by Ruben Portugues

Abstract

In order to succeed in a changing environment, animals need to take into account noisy and ambiguous stimuli and select appropriate behavior. Furthermore, animals need to modify their behavior when the outcome is unsuccessful. In this talk,
I will present two projects from my lab, which works on larval zebrafish, which touch upon these topics of decision making and motor control.
