Neurobiology of Disease

 


 
 
 
Date: May 21, 2007 (Monday)
Time: 10 a.m.
Theme: Neuroregeneration and repair: MS
Module: Overview
Session: Oligodendrocytes and myelin repair
Instructor: Robert Miller
Description: As the myelinating cells of the brain, oligodendrocytes are key to the pathogenesis and potential treatments of demyelinating disease. Dr. Robert Miller of Case Western Reserve University will discuss oligodendrocyte precursors cells (OPCs) and their potential role in myelin repair.
 
Readings: Competing waves of oligodendrocytes in the forebrain and postnatal elimination of an embryonic lineage
