Neuroscience Handout

This handout is designed to introduce and illustrate the research happening within the LSI Research Groups.

Doug Allan Lab

Lab research: Specification of neuronal identity during Drosophila nervous system development.

Vanessa Auld Lab

Lab research: The molecular interactions between glia and neurons that occuring during development of the nervous system of Drosophila. The development of permeability barriers in polarized epithelia and glia.

Shernaz Bamji Lab

Lab research: Molecular mechanisms underlying synapse formation, maintenance and elimination. Role of cell adhesion molecules at the synapse.

Michael Gordon

  Michael Gordon Gordon Lab Web Page Our brains are composed of billions of neurons, wired together in neural circuits that process information from the environment and produce behaviours.  My lab is interested in the organization, function, and development of these circuits.  We study this problem in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, an organism with […]

Hakima Moukhles Lab

Lab Research: Role of dystroglycan, a protein associated with several forms of muscular dystrophy, in the central nervous system. Molecular mechanisms underlying the dystroglycan-mediated targeting and polarization of proteins in glial cells.

Christian Naus Lab

Lab research: Gap Junctions in Neural Development and Disease.

Tim O’Connor Lab

Lab research: Molecular mechanisms of neuronal outgrowth, guidance and directed growth. Remodeling of the cytoskeleton during neurite outgrowth.

Jane Roskams Lab

Lab research: Control of neuronal cell death and differentiation during embryonic neurogenesis and regeneration.

Victor Viau Lab

Lab research:Sex and stress sensitive pathways in the brain
