Title: Self-organizing properties of cortical neurons

The developing brain exhibits a remarkable diversity of neuronal cell types, each with specialized functions that contribute to the proper function of the mature brain. The mechanisms underlying the generation and specification of neuronal diversity during development are complex and incompletely understood. During this presentation, I will illustrate recent work from my laboratory relating to how spatial and temporal controls over neuronal generation and differentiation contribute to circuit assembly, towards novel strategies for manipulating these processes to direct neuronal identity and connectivity.

About Neuroscience Seminars

Neuroscience seminars at the QBI play a major role in the advancement of neuroscience in the Asia-Pacific region. The primary goal of these seminars is to promote excellence in neuroscience through the exchange of ideas, establishing new collaborations and augmenting partnerships already in place.

Seminars in the QBI Auditorium on Level 7 are held on Wednesdays at 12-1pm, which are sometimes simulcast on Zoom (with approval from the speaker). We also occassionally hold seminars from international speakers via Zoom. The days and times of these seminars will vary depending on the time zone of the speaker. Please see each seminar listed below for details.
