visuomotor, whole-brain, behavior

I am a graduate student in Tom Clandinin’s lab, and study the structure of visually guided locomotion at the circuit and behavioral levels. How does visual input guide locomotion (sensory-to-motor), and how does locomotion affect visual processing (motor-to-sensory)? To answer these questions, I am mapping visuomotor processing onto specific neural circuits using whole-brain calcium imaging of head-fixed Drosophila, and using behavioral arenas to build models of the influence of visual stimuli on walking behavior. I hope to continue to study similar questions as a professor.
