Kathryn Maxson Jones, Princeton University, will present this talk.
History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine Seminar:
I this talk, I will explore the recurrent roles of lampreys in the history of neurobiology, especially with regards to studies of central nervous system (CNS) regeneration. Three attributes, I shall argue, have bolstered lampreys’ staying powers in the laboratory: their large CNS neurons, which have enabled direct physiological recordings for circuit analyses; their robust CNS regeneration after spinal cord injuries; and their early branching position in the vertebrate phylogeny.
