Event details

This talk will discuss the acute and chronic changes to neurotransmitter receptor function in the honeybee following exposure to pesticide agonists. This will be related to what we know (and don't know) about excitotoxicity and the chronic alterations to ligand-gated ion channel function - down regulation and up regulation. Can chronic exposure to pesticides result in synergistic toxicity and/or developmental problems? Are we safe?

This work lies at the interface between Neuropharmacology, Neurobiology and Ecology so should support learning in a number of UG Semester 2 courses. All welcome.
