"In Vivo Glia-to-Neuron Conversion For Brain Repair" – Gong Chen,Professor and Verne M. Willaman Chair in Life Sciences, Pennsylvania State University

June 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Gong Chen Willaman Professor The Pennsylvania State University Glial scar is widely associated with brain and spinal cord injury, stroke, glioma, and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. Reactive glia initially exert neuroprotective role but later form glial scar to inhibit neuroregeneration. Currently, there is no effective way to reverse glial scar back to neural tissue. We have recently developed an innovative in vivo cell conversion technology to directly convert reactive glial cells into functional neurons inside the mouse brain…

Investigating the residual visual pathways following damage to primary visual cortex – Dr Holly Bridge (FMRIB Centre, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford)

June 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Damage to the primary visual cortex leads to loss of the visual field contralateral to the damaged cortex. However, in spite of this loss, some patients are still able to detect visual information about stimuli presented within their blind field. A growing area of research aims to exploit this residual visual function to try to improve visual performance through rehabilitation programmes stimulating the blind field. However, to optimise such programmes it is important to understand the pathways through which this…
