Cajal course: Advanced Imaging Methods for Cellular Neuroscience

Course directors: Volker Haucke, Britta Eickholt, David Perrais

This advanced course allows the students to obtain hands-on experience with innovative techniques expected to be central in cellular neuroscience in the coming decade. These techniques focus on the study of cell proliferation and migration, axonal growth, cellular trafficking, synaptogenesis as well as mature cell function, in particular synaptic transmission and plasticity.

The course and its participants will greatly benefit from the infrastructure provided by the Bordeaux Imaging Centre. Finally, this course will emphasize how new techniques can address specific biological issues and lead to new concepts and discoveries in cellular neuroscience.
