    The nervous system translates sensory inputs into appropriate motor outputs. Although sensory inputs are processed in diverse and complex fashions, most of the results of their computations are eventually filtered through a shared end-point: the motor circuits of the spinal cord. The long term goal of our research is to address two major aspects of motor control: 1) What is the structure of the spinal microcircuit, and what are the functional synaptic properties of its connections? How do these output circuits serve to combine behavioral modules for optimal movements? 2) How do descending commands, especially those from the vestibular (balance) system, operate on spinal microcircuits to elicit behavior?
