Archived Seminar: Cells That Tile Your Brain: Astrocyte Contributions to Neural Circuits and Disease
Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar presented by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC
About This Seminar
Astrocytes tile the central nervous system, but their functions in neural microcircuits in vivo and their roles in mammalian behavior and disease are incompletely defined. Dr. Khakh will report experiments from brain slices and in vivo on the functional roles of astrocytes within intact adult neural circuits in relation to psychiatric phenotypes and neurological disease.
This is a free event hosted by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute and co-sponsored by the institute's Center for Glial Biology in Health, Disease and Cancer. The Fralin Biomedical Research Institute Pioneers in Biomedical Research Program offers the expertise of a range of scientists who are exploring frontiers in biomedical research. These seminars are open to Virginia Tech and Carilion Clinic faculty, students, and staff.
