Discovery of novel interneurons in the auditory system

Date: Monday, July 22, 2019 11:00 - 12:00
Speaker: Laurence Trussell (Oregon Health & Science University)
Location: Mondi Seminar Room 2, Central Building
Series: Life Sciences Seminar
Host: Peter Jonas

Abstract:

The ventral cochlear nucleus is the starting point for auditory processing in the brain. To date, only a single subtype of inhibitory interneuron has been described there. Using a combination of transgenic mouse lines, electrophysiology, and large-scale tissue imaging, we have identified a new group of neurons that may account for over 90% of inhibitory cells in this brain region.
