Behaviors result from integrated systems of neural circuits, muscles and body structures. These systems, working together and interacting with the physical environment, generate movement. Movement and the morphology that underlies it change strikingly over developmental and evolutionary time while maintaining critical roles for the organism. Our research examines how such systems function, how they change through the life history of an organism and how they diversify over longer timescales across the landscape of animal evolution.
