The purpose of this web site is to promote research and education in
computational approaches to C. elegans behavior and neurobiology.
This tiny animal has only 302 neurons and 95 muscle cells, making an
anatomically detailed model of the entire body and nervous system an
attainable goal. Physiological information is still incomplete, but
computer simulations can help direction experiments to questions which
are most relevant for understanding the neural control of behavior.
