Unraveling molecular, cellular and circuit mechanisms of information processing during learning, memory and decision making is a fundamental question in neuroscience. Based on our comprehensive analysis of a learning-based behavior in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, emerging picture on principles as to how the compact nervous system enables to generate
behavioral responses will be discussed.
