Title: Dynamical Architectures for Control of Rhythmic Behavior * Colloquium on Complex and Biological Systems

Time: Fri, July 3, 2015, 10:15am

Place: bldg 28, room 0.108

Abstract:
How do rhythmic motor systems achieve both robustness to perturbations and sensitivity to variable operating conditions? Do limit cycle (LC) oscillators and chain reflexes (CR) capture two extremes along a continuum of central pattern generation models? We investigate the consequences of different dynamical architectures for incorporating sensory input in motor control, and quantitatively evaluate the advantages of intermediate architectures, such as stable heteroclinic channels, which combine features of both LC and CR dynamics.
