Spatial and temporal mechanisms of vagus motor neuron topographic map development

Defense date: 06/16/2017

Research Summary

Topographic neural maps, in which spatial information from the body is represented in the nervous system, are a common theme in nervous system organization. I am studying mechanisms underlying topographic map formation, using the cranial motor neurons of the zebrafish embryo as a model.
