Neuroscience & Non-Communicable Diseases Seminar Series

A/Prof Brett Graham (School of Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacy, University of Newcastle)

Brett’s research focus aims to understand and treat a range of spinally-based conditions including neuropathic pain. Knowledge about how the lines of communication in the spinal cord are connected normally is critical if we are to repair and rewire them after damage. This is a task that has long been considered too immense given the sheer number of different nerve cell types that are interconnected in spinal cord networks, and the lack of anatomical organisation – ie, unlike a telephone exchange where wires and cables are organised in a roughly ordered manner, the connections of the spinal cord are intermingled in a chaotic and disorganised mosaic. Fortunately, a number of recent scientific breakthroughs have provided tools to understand how spinal networks are connected and disconnected by disease and injury.

All welcome. Drinks and nibbles from 3:30pm, seminar starts, 4pm.
