Event Description 

Though it might feel automatic to suddenly reach and grab for a falling cup, a lot has to line up for this action to take place--even if you don’t manage to catch the cup in time. What does it take to choreograph the cells across the brain in just the right way to do what we need to do? In this event, three experts studying the neuroscience of movement will discuss how neurons work together to generate a wealth of behaviors, from a simple reflex to complex learned skills.
