Profiles in Discovery: Nick Spitzer - The Ever-Changing Brain: From Embryo To Adult

12/15/2014; 58 minutes

How the embryonic nervous system is assembled and the adult brain is modified depend on both genes and the environment - experiences such as learning and memory that can radically change the brain's wiring or neuronal function. Professor Spitzer discusses his studies that have provided a new look at how neuronal wiring is assembled in the developing brain and the impact that environment has on continually shaping the brain later in life.
