Description
This course will cover concepts and theories on evolutionary changes in nervous system regenerative capacity of different organisms. Material will be taught in a dynamic setting combining lectures and brainstorming of the literature with hands-on experience in the laboratory. Students will become familiar with classic, paradigm-changing experiments that have shaped how we think about brain regeneration and repair and also consider the newest theories on cellular reprogramming as a way to regenerate the nervous system.
