Webinar: Nils Brose examines synapse proteins in autism

9 March 2016
The Presenter

Nils Brose

Director, Department of Molecular Neurobiology, Max Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine

Nils Brose’s research focuses on molecular mechanisms of synapse development and function in the central nervous system.

On 9 March, Nils Brose presented data from studies of proteins called neuroligins that control the formation of nerve cell junctions, or synapses. He discussed how the loss of neuroligins perturbs synapse function and what studies of neuroligins might mean for understanding and treating autism.
