A model of song syntax generation in the Bengalese finch

A model of song syntax generation in the Bengalese finch

Bengalese Finches are domestic songbirds that have a long history of helping scientists to understand the generation of complex sequential behavior. Each male Bengalese Finch learns a song from his father that exhibits a distinct and individual syntax. Researchers at the Bernstein Center Freiburg wanted to understand how, on the level of networks of nerve cells, such song formation might come about.
