Circuits and Behavior

Considerable progress has been made in understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate the function of individual neurons. However, further progress in understanding the neural basis for brain functions such as perception, action, and cognition requires deciphering the complex synaptic interactions between identified populations of neurons that constitute functional neural circuits. By combining the latest technological developments with novel experimental and computational approaches, DIBS investigators are defining how neural circuits contribute to brain function, how these circuits arise during development, and how they are shaped by experience in the adult.
