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!
