Abstract

This project aims to identify novel mechanisms that govern brain myelination and functions. Myelination in the brain is a lifelong process that is vital for normal nervous system functions. This project will generate a new level of understanding as to why nerve cell signals are important for myelination and brain functions, and how this is tightly regulated by cell signal transmission. The data generated will identify new mechanisms involved in the development and maintenance of a healthy brain.
