Anatomy, development, plasticity and repair

This section covers all aspects of brain anatomy, development, plasticity and repair in human, cellular, organoid and animal models. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, neural development, glial development, neural activity, synapse formation, stem cells, plasticity, neurotrauma and repair, neuropharmacology, pathophysiology, and regeneration and genetics and genomics of neural development and function.
