Title:  "Neuronal Trafficking - Linking mechanisms to functions in live neurons"


Neurons are the most polarized cells in human body, with highly specialized dendritic and axonal structures to facilitate the information flow through the brain circuits. A dynamic intracellular vesicle trafficking system enables the efficient material transport underlying complicated neural activities. Here I will share my recent studies using advanced microscopy techniques to explore the neuronal trafficking in axons and postsynaptic dendritic spines of live neurons.

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.
