Learn about the exciting research being done by faculty in all departments of the College of Arts and Sciences! Title: From Repairing the Brain to Connecting the Brain: Astrocytes are Bystanders No MoreSpeaker: A. Denise Garcia, assistant professor of biologyAstrocytes are the most abundant cell type in the brain. Though once regarded as merely structural support for neurons, astrocytes are gaining increasing recognition for their active and diverse roles in brain function. From protecting the brain after injury, to mechanisms of learning and memory, to serving as neural stem cells in the adult, astrocytes are critical components of a broad range of central nervous system (CNS) processes. This talk will discuss the emerging roles for astrocytes in CNS function, focusing on their role in establishing, maintaining and reorganizing neural circuits. This event is free and open to the Drexel community. Light refreshments will be served.
