Neurobiology of Disease


Date: May 8, 2012 (Tuesday)
Time: 9 a.m., Jungers Center Symposium, Vey Conference Center, Doernbecher Children's Hospital
Theme: Mitochondria and Energetics (stroke, peripheral neuropathy)
Module: Overview
Session: In vivo imaging of cortical circuits, before, during and after ischemia
Instructor: Tim Murphy, University of British Columbia
Objectives: Dr. Timothy Murphy (UBC), a participant in the Jungers Symposium, will present his work using high resolution imaging to understand the mechanisms of stroke injury and the recovery following injury.
Study questions:
  1. How long does it take for ischemia to produce damage to neuronal tissue?
  2. What is the 'penumbra' and how does it differ between focal and global ischemia?
  3. What is "neuroprotection" and does it work?
  4. What circuits are involved in "stroke recovery"?
