Investigating the Neural Basis of Complex Spatial Behaviors Under Natural and Learned Conditions in Freely Flying Bats: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar | December 4 | 2-3 p.m. | 390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building | Note change in date

Prof. Michael Yartsev, UC Berkeley, Bioengineering / Neuroscience

Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

Navigation, both learned and natural, requires knowing where you are and the ability to decide, based on available evidence, where to go from there. Here, I will describe recent work, conducted in both terrestrial and flying species, addressing the neural mechanisms underlying these core functions.

I will begin with describing recent findings on the spatial representation system in the...   More >
