Professor

UC San Diego

Title of the talk: The Actin Cytoskeleton Helps Neurons Survive Stroke:  a Novel Protective Molecular Pathway in Cellular Edema

Language to be used: English

Room: 103, Science Frontier Laboratory Building

Short description of the talk: Neurons exposed to hypoxia hyperactivate glutamate receptors, which leads to loss of membrane potential, cell swelling, and oncosis.  Dr. Halpain will describe a neuronal pro-survival mechanism whereby the actin cytoskeleton is rapidly reorganized in dendrites in response to glutamate receptor hyperactivation.
