Neural circuits large and small implement transfer functions that combine sensory inputs and prior experience to choose a behavioral response. By studying the most convenient animal models -- from the giant axon of the squid and the lobster's stomatogastric circuits to Aplysia's synapses and C. elegans' circuits -- neuroscientists have stumbled upon some of the operating principles of the nervous system, which were then found to apply broadly across phyla. This meeting will bring together neuroscientists working on a broad diversity of animal models in an effort to compare circuits across phyla as a means to crack their function.
