Using biorobotics to investigate cue integration and neural mechanisms of navigation in ants

Barbara Webb, Professor of Biorobotics, University of Edinburgh, Scotland
Friday, December 7, 2018
12:00-1:00 PM
1060 Biological Sciences Building Map
Co-Hosts: Josie Clowney and Talia Moore
Lunch reception at 1pm

Professor Webb researches and models the sensorimotor capabilities of insects. This ranges from simple reflexive behaviours such as the phonotaxis of crickets, to more complex capabilities such as multimodal integration, navigation and learning. Her lab carries out behavioral experiments on insects, but principally works on computational models of the underlying neural mechanisms, which are often embedded on robot hardware.
