Using brain-wide functional imaging, in a virtual-reality setting, we aim to dissect the neural computation at play during goal-directed locomotion (such as phototaxis, thermotaxis, chemotaxis). We will in particular study how sensory cues may bias the statistics of spontaneous locomotory events (swim bouts) to eventually drive the animal towards the most adequate regions of the environment.
