Locomotion is an ancient behavior displayed by vertebrate and invertebrate animals. Despite anatomical differences in the execution of locomotion between species, locomotion invariably relies on the function of a specialized network of neuronal and muscle cells known as the motor circuit. Motor neurons lie at the heart of this circuit and display remarkable diversity based on anatomy, electrophysiology and molecular composition. Decades of research on motor neuron development and function have set the foundation upon which we intend to build and expand our knowledge on the molecular principles governing motor neuron diversity and motor circuit assembly.
