This project seeks to reproduce the neural circuits used by the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans for locomotion. Utilizing only 113 neurons, this simple circuit drives the 95 body wall muscles to generate surprisingly complex and adaptive locomotion behavior. Recent advances in C. elegans electrophysiological techniques, which have resulted in a surge of new data, have made it possible to build an accurate computational model of C. elegans locomotion. This project combines the efforts of two labs with respective strengths in computational neuroscienceartificial intelligence and C. elegans electrophysiology to create this model.
