This seminar will present my recent work to investigate common control design principles in two different systems, the gaze stabilization system at the behavioural level in flies and the skin barrier homeostasis regulation system at the cellular-organ level in humans. Through these two examples, I will illustrate two important design principles for biological control: Combination of fast, rough compensation followed by slow, detailed regulation and use of two competing signals (e.g. activators/inhibitors) to flexibly set the homeostatic values.
