Event details

Do you ever wonder how our brains works and what causes the changes during ageing that lead to diseases that result in memory or vision loss?

In a series of two lectures we will provide an overview on how our brain and eyes works and the biological mechanisms underlying disease. Using state of the art imaging technology available at the University of Southampton, we are now able to track molecules and proteins in the central nervous system and untangle some of the mystery of the brain and the retina. This technology has been a great step forward in understanding our central nervous system and may help to design novel drugs to treat devastating diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, macular degeneration and type 2 diabetes.

In the lectures you will learn how neurons develop, how they communicate with each other and which processes underlie their function and dysfunction.

Led by the Centre for Biological Sciences - University of Southampton
