NEUR 353 Neuroregeneration

Our neuronal tissues are particularly sensitive to injury and, in many cases, are not able to repair themselves. This course explores the problem of neuronal regeneration through in-class discussions and an analysis of primary research literature. We will investigate invertebrates and amphibians with remarkable regenerative capabilities as well as regeneration of axons and sensory cells in both mammalian and non-mammalian systems.
