How nature and nurture conspire to control brain development and function  - Michael Greenberg

Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute, Michael Greenberg
May 9, 2019 - 11:30am to 12:30pm
Clark Center Auditorium

Michael Greenberg, MD, PhD

Professor of Neurobiology, Harvard University

Host: Thomas Sudhof


Abstract

Dr. Greenberg's research seeks to understand how neuronal activity controls gene transcription to affect critical steps in synapse and neural circuit development. In addition to providing insight into the process of brain development, this research has contributed to the understanding of neurological and psychiatric diseases in which these processes have gone awry.
