Nombre d'étudiants : 1
Description : The small cnidarian Hydra possesses one of the simplest “brain” of the animal kingdom. Therefore, the tracking of all his individual neurons is possible and might lead to the first entire decoding of a brain (i.e. the understanding of how interacting neurons can integrate the environment’s cues, compute the animal’s state and trigger appropriate behaviors).
Travail demandé : Using the information about single neuron activity of the animal, this project will aim at determining the functional relations between neurons underlying the animal’s behavior using statistical analysis of neurons’ co-activity.
