Neural circuits of state-dependent behavior

Perception and decisions are based not only on sensory impressions, but also on the internal and behavioral state of an animal. Behavior is therefore adaptive and flexible. What enables communication between the body and brain to regulate behavior? To answer such questions, we use model organisms in combination with modern methods of behavioral analysis, computational methods, (opto)genetics and in vivo functional imaging and microscopy.
