Join us for an exciting event where speakers from the ibehave consortia will share their cutting-edge research on natural behaviors and their neural basis. Don't miss this unique opportunity to learn about the fascinating world of neuroscience and behavior!

100 neurons to see before you fly: Examining how connections are made in the fly brain!

Hannah Jones (University of Cologne)
Neurons are the building blocks of the brain, but due to the number and the complexity of neurons in the human brain, we’ve turned to the humble fruit fly to understand the secrets of how they connect and function. In Hannah's talk, she will show you the weird and wonderful techniques we can use to look at neurons in the fly brain and how the activity of a single neuron can lead to astonishingly complicated behaviors, even in a tiny fly.

Anticipating Human Behavior with Artificial Intelligence

Jürgen Gall (Department of Information Systems and Artificial Intelligence)
Whether it's on the football field, in autonomous driving, or in future collaborations between humans and robots, predicting the behavior of others is crucial. Join Jürgen as he explains how artificial intelligence can anticipate human behavior from video data. Plus, get ready to put your prediction skills to the test against AI in a fun competition!

Worm warfare: how predatory nematodes find their prey

Marianne Roca (Max Planck Institute for Neurobiology of Behavior)
Marianne will talk about an interesting type of worm called Pristionchus pacificus. These worms use their teeth and special behavior to hunt and kill other worms in their environment. This behavior is not common in most worms, but by studying it we can learn a lot about how behaviors develop and are controlled. Marianne's research focuses on how these worms use their sense of touch to find their prey.

Identifying patterns of behavior with artificial intelligence

Jens Tillmann (Institute for Experimental Epileptology and Cognition Research)
Have you ever wondered how our brains control our behavior? Join Jens, a postdoc in neuroethology, as he takes us on a journey through the mysterious workings of the brain. Using cutting-edge artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques, Jens and his team are uncovering the secrets of innate behavior and its link to neurological disorders such as epilepsy. Discover how they're pushing the limits of what we thought was possible and what this means for the future of neuroscience.
