Neuroscience Graduate Group

Mechanisms of Neuronal Recovery and Regeneration - INSC 600-003

T/R 10:30am to noon; 2nd half of Spring 2009

Module Overview

A bench-to-bedside presentation of the mechanisms, methodologies, clinical applications, and future directions for restoring function of the acutely damaged nervous system.

Module Goals

Most sessions will discuss: a) mechanisms of injury; b) targets for therapy and past clinical trials; c) development of future treatments via new clinical trials.

Assigned Readings

Papers from the primary literature will be assigned weekly and be presented by teams of students during the Friday course sessions. There will be no lecture on these days. Students will read the background readings and generate questions to be used during the in-class discussion.
