Monday September 24, 2012 11:45 - 12:00 @ Rhodes 8   Differential regulation of the Erk pathway in sensory neurons and glia: A high content microscopy approach Abstract: Contrary to other cellular models, the signaling networks underlying sensitization in primary sensory neurons are only starting to be explored. A simple transfer of knowledge from one cell type to another is tempting, but not always valid. Here, we... Read More →

Monday September 24, 2012 11:15 - 11:45 @ Rhodes 8    Revisiting Heuser and Reese: ultrafast endocytosis at C. elegans synapses  Abstract: To sustain high rates of release, synaptic vesicles must be recycled locally at a synapse. There are two major models for the recovery of synaptic vesicles: clathrin-mediated endocytosis and kiss-and-run endocytosis.   We have developed a method to stimulate an intact nematode and...

Monday September 24, 2012 12:30 - 12:45 @ Rhodes 8   Motion dynamics of synaptic vesicle populations at nanometer resolution Abstract: Most central synapses contain a very small number of release-competent vesicles. Synaptic function thus critically depends on an efficient vesicle recycling program to sustain and control neurotransmitter release. Despite several decades of research on synaptic function, the basic vesicle cycling... Read More →

Institute of Biology, Free University Berlin & NeuroCure
Monday September 24, 2012 12:00 - 12:30 @ Rhodes 8   Shedding light on the assembly of synapse structure and function Abstract: The majority of rapid cell-to-cell communication mechanisms and information processing within the nervous system makes use of chemical synapses. Thereby, the molecular organization of presynaptic active zones, the places where neurotransmitter filled synaptic vesicles get released, is a focus of intense... Read More →
