How Do Glia Sculpt Synaptic Circuits

Fralin Biomedical Research Institute, R3012
2 Riverside Circle, Roanoke, VA 24016

How are synaptic networks formed during development and remodeled during learning and disease? This is the main question that drives Dr. Eroglu’s research at Duke University. In particular, her lab investigates the roles of glial cells called astrocytes in the development, remodeling and function of synaptic circuits. Dr. Eroglu will share findings from her lab on two distinct molecular mechanisms through which astrocytes control synapse formation. She will also discuss how synaptogenic astrocyte signals are critical for proper development and function of the nervous system.
