Hearing, Balance & Chemical Senses Seminar

December 14, 2017 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Dr. Michael Sutton is Associate Professor of the Molecular & Behavioral Neuroscience Institute at the U-M. He completed his doctorate at Yale University. He will present his talk, Homeostatic Control of Synapse Function, on December 14, 2017, at the Hearing, Balance, and Chemical Senses Seminar, 12 PM, in Room 5915 Buhl. Refreshments will be served. Dr. Sutton describes his research interest and work of his lab: “The remarkable information processing capacity of neurons in the mammalian brain stems from the intricate organization of their synaptic connections and the ability of these synapses to change with experience. In brain areas such as the hippocampus, the ability of principal neurons to accommodate dense networks of synaptic connectivity is critical for higher cognitive functions such as learning and memory. Our group is interested in the molecular mechanisms that control the development, maintenance and plasticity of these synapses.”
