Multifunctional control of feeding in Aplysia (Webster-Wood et al. 2020)

Hybrid Boolean network implementation of a functional model of key feeding behaviors (biting, swallowing, rejection) and behavioral switching induced by sensory cues. Incorporates known neural connectivity and a mechanical model of the feeding apparatus.

Region(s) or Organism(s): Aplysia

Cell Type(s): Aplysia feeding CPG neurons; Aplysia interneuron; Aplysia motor neuron; Aplysia B31/B32 neuron

Model Concept(s): Invertebrate; Bursting; Connectivity matrix; Behavioral switching

Simulation Environment: Python; MATLAB

Implementer(s): Webster-Wood, Victoria A; Gill, Jeffrey P; Thomas, Peter J; Chiel, Hillel J
