Making Connections: Early Development of Neural Circuits for Breathing in Larval Zebrafish
Dr. Kimberly McArthur, Southwestern University
View the recording of the event below.
The hindbrain generates many coordinated, rhythmic behaviors (like feeding and breathing) that are critical for an animal’s survival. How do the neural circuits that generate these behaviors develop and refine themselves over time? In this talk, you will learn how experiments in larval zebrafish are helping us understand the early development of these neural circuits — with important implications for our understanding of human brain development.
