Calcium and chloride dynamics in immature neurons and their role in dendritic growth

Abstract:

Activity-dependent dendritic development is an important process in the maturation of neuronal circuits. The precise morphology of a neuron’s dendritic tree dictates which other cells it is able to interact with and how it will receive and process synaptic information. The aim of this Thesis was to investigate the mechanisms by which dendrites grow and, in particular, how changes in intracellular ion concentrations contribute to these mechanisms. One important activity-dependent signal is cal...
