”Molecular Memory Systems in Brain Repair after Stroke”
The biology of tissue repair and recovery is increasingly well defined after stroke. Brain circuits adjacent to or connected with stroke experience alterations in plasticity and functional connections as a result of the distant stroke damage. Recent research indicates that molecular systems that modulate synaptic plasticity in learning and memory processes are also uniquely influenced by stroke, and can be manipulated to enhance recovery. These studies have moved from the research lab to clinical trials. This talk will cover synaptic plasticity after stroke and enhancing excitatory signaling in a way that facilitates functional connectivity and recovery of function.
Time & place: 16:00, Segerfalk lecture hall, BMC, A10
The seminar will be followed by a mingle with light refreshments.
Host: Tadeusz Wieloch
Short biography: Professor Carmichael has active laboratory and clinical interests in stroke and neurorehabilitation and how the brain repairs from injury. Dr. Carmichael is a leading scientists in stroke research who published important papers on stroke recovery that have defined mechanisms of plasticity and repair. https://www.uclahealth.org/stanley-carmichael-jr
