Expert Talk

Dr Catherine Blizzard is an Australian Research Council Fellow at the University of Tasmania who works on understanding how different neurons in the brain communicate. This communication is tightly controlled and if neurons talk too much, or not enough, they can become sick.This is what we think happens in motor neuron disease in the motor cortex.

In this talk, Catherine will discuss her research on why neurons stop communicating properly in motor neuron disease, and if there is a way she can prevent this from happening.
