    • Biomechanical Analysis Of Gait Adaptation In The Nematode Caenorhabditis elegans 

      Fang-Yen, Christopher; Wyart, Matthieu; Xie, Julie; Kawai, Risa; Kodger, Thomas Edward; Chen, Sway; Wen, Quan; Samuel, Aravinthan DT (National Academy of Sciences, 2010)
      To navigate different environments, an animal must be able to adapt its locomotory gait to its physical surroundings. The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, between swimming in water and crawling on surfaces, adapts its ...
    • A Fully Automated High-Throughput Training System for Rodents 

      Poddar, Rajesh; Kawai, Risa; Ölveczky, Bence P. (Public Library of Science, 2013)
      Addressing the neural mechanisms underlying complex learned behaviors requires training animals in well-controlled tasks, an often time-consuming and labor-intensive process that can severely limit the feasibility of such ...
    • The role of motor cortex in the acquisition and production of learned motor sequences 

      Kawai, Risa (2014-06-06)
      Motor skill learning underlies much of what we do, be it hitting a tennis serve, playing the piano, or simply brushing our teeth. Yet despite its importance, little is known about the neural circuits that implement the ...
