Lectures and seminars Fysiologföreningen presents Simon Alford
Welcome to a seminar with Professor Simon Alford, "Modulation of neurotransmitter release – synaptic integration in the presynaptic terminal", on 18 December at 11:45 in Biomedicum.
"Modulation of neurotransmitter release – synaptic integration in the presynaptic terminal"
Professor Simon Alford
University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, Chicago, IL, USA
Professor Simon Alford is the Chair of Neuroscience and Cell Biology at University of Illinois. He is known among many other contributions for his studies of presynaptic inhibition in the terminals of excitatory and inhibitory interneurons and the effects exerted in a behavioral context. Lately detailed studies of the G- protein- mediated presynaptic modulation of transmitter release, targeting the mechanisms underlying vesicular release in the synaptic terminal including snare proteins and the dynamic role and timing of calcium entry.
Please note there is restricted access to the seminar. Please contact Sten Grillner (cell phone: +46 (0)70 343 99 00) if you need assistance to enter.
