Neural Computations Underlying Social Behavior in Complex Sensory Environments

Project description

Understanding the neural basis of socialising

What are the neural computations underlying social behaviour in groups? How are multi-modal cues integrated to control and switch between courtship and aggression? How does sensory processing adapt in big crowds to target the behaviour of individual members of the group? The EU-funded NeuSoSen project seeks to answer these questions. It will combine computational modelling and genetic tools. Machine learning will help the project quantify and model the fine structure of social interactions to identify the social cues that drive behaviour. Ultimately, the project aims to uncover the computational principles and mechanisms by which sensory information is processed to drive behaviour in the complex sensory environment of animal groups.
