  • Keywords:
    actin, microtubule, cytoskeleton, single molecule, multicolor TIRF microscopy, neurogenesis, neurotransmission, spinal muscular atrophy, synaptic vesicle, exocytosis, endocytosis

  • Description
    We are currently studying the molecular mechanisms that govern the actin dynamics that regulate neurogenesis and neurotransmission in both healthy (motor)neurons and in the context of spinal muscular atrophy.
