Toshihide Yamashita, Chair, Department of Molecular Neuroscience, Osaka University (Japan)

Understanding the recovery of the nervous system is a major challenge. Initial behavioral deficits resulting from injuries in the central nervous system (such as traffic accident injuries) are frequently followed by spontaneous recovery of function.
Professor Yamashita will describe his latest research findings which focus on molecular mechanism of neuronal rewiring regulation under neuronal injures and neurodegenerative disorders.
