Advanced Cell Symposium on the Mechanisms of Neuronal Polarity
Thursday, March 8, 1 – 2:30 p.m.
Neurobiology and Anatomy Department seminar room (#276) at Queen Lane
Symposium on the mechanisms of neuronal polarity: How does a neuron generate one axon and many dendrites from seemingly identical neurites?
Speakers are students in the Advanced Cellular Neuroscience class. Here is a list of the speakers and their subtopics:
- Sara Blazejewski: Process of neurite initiation
- Silvia Fernandes: Role of actin in neuronal polarity
- Lauren Plyler: Role of cytosolic flow and organelle trafficking in neuronal polarity
- Jaki DeFinis: Role of the centrosome and golgi in neuronal polarity
- Philip Yates: Role of microtubules in neuronal polarity
Everyone is welcome to attend!
