Fascinating Behaviors

How do brains drive behavioral adaptability?
Our ultimate goal is to understand how the brain controls behavior. Even though all brains are made of the same building blocks - the nerve cells or neurons - different animal species successfully occupy a vast range of habitats. How is such adaptability possible?

At MPINB, we focus on different animal species and on their special behaviors to unravel general principles of neural information processing and decision-making in the brain.
