Abstract

We aim to identify the mechanisms whereby the developing vertebrate nervous system controls visually guided behavior and rapid perceptual decision making (behavioral choice) at the level of synapses, cells and circuits. A main goal is to find neural circuits that perform certain computational steps such as stimulus detection, object classification and action selection, and to understand how circuit function emerges from synaptic connectivity. To achieve this, we use multiphoton calcium imaging and single-cell recordings targeted at genetically defined cell types in the zebrafish nervous system in combination with analysis of 3D electron microscopical data.
