Neurogenesis: From Cell Fate to Neural Circuitry
2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Co-Chairs: Thomas Brody, NINDS and Ward F. Odenwald, NINDS

Establishment of unique cell fates during neural lineage development, centrally in terms of the hierarchy of gene activation in the nucleus and peripherally in the functioning of signaling proteins in the cytoplasm and at the surface of the cell, determines cellular architecture and functional specificity. Further, down the developmental cascade, neural plasticity bridges the gap between development and learning. This symposium will deal with the molecular and cellular basis of neurogenesis and the construction of neural circuitry.
