Animal behaviors in response to the environment

Living organisms need to persevere through the challenges in varying environments. Their behaviors are therefore regulated in response to the internal state of the body and to environmental conditions.


Our research aim at (1) quantitative description of animal behaviors and (2) understanding of basic principles, using the simple model organism Caenorhabditis elegans. Together with the advance in microfluidics and image processing techniques, we now have a unique opportunity for a study of living animals to precisely defined environments.
