Project A9 (Krieger)

Investigation of cortico-subcortical dynamics in sensorimotor integration

Summary

Picture for Project A5

Behaviour, guided by sensory stimuli, depends on the interplay between movements of the sensory organ, cortical processing, and finally motor output that can cause adjustment of body position and sensory organ movements. This sensory-motor-sensory loop is dynamically regulated by cortical control of sub-cortical structures. Using the rodent somatosensory cortex as a model system, we analyze the importance of cortical projections to brain areas involved in sensory-guided behavior, including specifically cortical responses to optimize detectability of sensory stimuli.
