BI 054 Kanaka Rajan: How Do We Switch Behaviors?

Support the Podcast

Kanaka and I discuss a few different ways she uses recurrent neural networks to understand how brains give rise to behaviors. We talk about her work showing how neural circuits transition from active to passive coping behavior in zebrafish, and how RNNs could be used to understand how we switch tasks in general and how we multi-task. Plus the usual fun speculation, advice, and more.
