Motor Systems

NEU 420

Info tab content
The goal of this course is to introduce students to the field of motor control from an interdisciplinary and comparative biological perspective. We will focus on how organisms move through a complex, unpredictable environment. Major topics will include muscle and limb control, how animals build and execute a motor program, and how they incorporate sensory feedback into that motor program. We will use examples from both vertebrate and invertebrate systems and look across scales of biological organization. The class will be a mix of the occasional lecture and discussion of primary literature.
