Maximilian Jösch and his group study the neuronal basis of innate behaviors; the processes implemented by neuronal circuits to transform sensory information into motor commands. To accomplish this goal they use a multidisciplinary approach that takes advantage of techniques to monitor brain activity during animal behavior. This is combined with novel techniques to perturb neuronal dynamics, edit genetic information and map the connectivity diagrams of neuronal networks to reveal the principles and motifs of neuronal computation in fly and mouse.
