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

Abstract:

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.

The scheduled QBI Neuroscience Seminar series are held on Wednesdays from 11am-12pm in the Level 7 Auditorium of the Queensland Brain Institute, Building 79, St Lucia Campus, The University of Queensland. Additional seminars may be held at other times as listed below.
