BIOL 4015 - Neural Development Laboratory: From stem cells to neuronal circuitry

Neural stem cells proliferate throughout development to generate the immense diversity of neuronal cell types present in our adult brains. What are the signals that drive neural stem cells to proliferate & what are the signals that terminate stem cell divisions once development is complete? Using Drosophila we will investigate these questions and address specifically the role of nutrition in regulating profileration of the stem cell population. Prerequisite: BIOL 3000, BIOL 3010
