Cells Webinar | Nervous System Development and Plasticity in Model Organisms

Come join the 3rd Webinar in the Cells Series!
The Nervous system is essential for receiving, transferring, and processing information, which allows us to make important decisions and carry out everyday tasks. It is composed of two main cell populations, which are the neurons and the glial cells.
As the central part of the nervous system, neurons process incoming information and transmit it to different parts of the body. Glial cells provide support and protection for neurons and are necessary for neural development, synapse and myelin formation and proper function of neurons. They also maintain the homeostasis of the nervous system as some population of glial cells can behave as neural stem cells during embryonic development and in adult stages.
During the development of an organism, the nervous system undergoes significant changes not only regarding its structure but also its function. Neurons, glial cells and the numerous molecular signals and components that are part of the nervous system, can play various roles during different stages of development and in different parts of the nervous system.
This webinar features several eminent experts in the field of nervous system development, maintenance and regeneration in different model organisms.
This webinar will include the following experts:
  • Dr. Sepand Rastegar, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany
  • Dr. Ciaran Murphy-Royal, Université de Montréal, Canada
  • Dr. Laure Bally-Cuif, Institut Pasteur, France

When? 8 March 2021 at 5.00pm CET | 10.00am CST US | 12.00am CST Asia
