Enabling flexibility in innate behavioural sequences
Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve been washing our hands more than ever. While the process involves several steps, we simply do it without much thought. But how does our nervous system allow us to carry out such behavioural sequences, while also allowing flexibility? In this Q&A, Dr Kevin Cury discusses what constitutes a behavioural sequence, what prompted him to study them and his key observations so far.
