Abstract

The processing components and the dynamic signaling network that an individual cell uses to do signal integration and make decisions based on multiple sensory inputs are being identified in a well studied free-swimming unicellular green algal model organism, Chlamydomonas. It has many sensory photo receptors and measurable behavior associated with its orienting and swimming with respect to light sources in its environment. Study of the dynamics of the beating of its two steering cilia reveals their complex specialization.
