Neurobiology of Disease


Date: May 15, 2012 (Tuesday)
Time: 10 a.m.
Theme: Mitochondria and Energetics (stroke, peripheral neuropathy)
Module: Overview
Session: Mitochondrial dynamics and axon degeneration
Instructor: Robert H. Baloh, Cedar-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California
Objectives: Dr. Robert Baloh will discuss neurodegeneration in the peripheral nervous system and the role of mitochondria.
Study questions:
  1. Where are mitochondria located in axons?
  2. How is mitochondrial fusion related to mobility?
  3. How might decreased mitochondrial mobility contribute to axonal degeneration?
