Part of the SWC Seminar Series.

Abstract for talk: The control of movements by the nervous system is progressively refined during both embryonic and postnatal development. This refinement results in part from changes in neural circuitry across the nervous system. This is particularly true in the spinal cord where neural circuits critical for the control of muscle activity reside. Our lab has studied the maturation of specific forms of movements in mouse and fish and we have identified specific changes in spinal circuitry that underlie this maturation. These insights into how the refinement of movements arise from specific changes in spinal circuits provide a better understanding into how the nervous system controls movements in mature individuals.
