|Presentation Title||How to build a neural circuit: Lessons from the retina|
|Status||This meeting has already occurred|
Developing neurons use cell-cell recognition to organize into circuits.
In the mouse retina, >70 different neuron types, each with specific processing tasks, recognize and avoid their homotypic neighbors, producing an organized, functional array across the retinal surface.
Such retinal “mosaics” elegantly safeguard against blind spots. I will discuss the development of retinal mosaics, and their use as an excellent model for dissecting the molecular logic of cell-cell recognition in the developing nervous system.
