Cerebellar mechanisms for governing goal-directed and social behaviours

Project description

Explaining neural structure–function correlations

Neuroscientists are looking to explain the complex dynamics underlying neural circuits enabling adaptive behaviour. The cerebellum, responsible for the coordination of movement and balance, can help researchers explore neural structure–function correlations. This is mainly due to its role in several cognitive functions and brain disorders, and it has shown participation in acquiring goal-directed behaviour. The EU-funded CEREBELLARCODE project will characterise the activity of the various cerebellar neurons in a wide array of states specifying their common (or diverging) functions in different patterns of behaviour. The project will develop and use a machine learning classifier. It will also use a record from autism model mice to reveal crucial neural mechanisms of ‘normal’ or pathological conditions.
