Learning and Relearning Movement

Human motor learning depends on a suite of brain mechanisms that are driven by different signals and operate on timescales ranging from minutes to years. Understanding these processes requires identifying how new movement patterns are normally acquired, retained, and generalized, as well as the effects of distinct brain lesions. The lecture focuses on normal and abnormal motor learning and how we can use this information to improve rehabilitation for individuals with neurological damage

“Curious Intersection Between DNA Repair and Microtubule Dynamics”

Linda Wordeman, Ph.D
Professor
Physiology & Biophysics, UW

Dr. Linda Wordeman, Ph.D. uses high resolution live imaging to discover how changes in microtubule dynamics influence chromosome segregation and Chromosome INstability (CIN) in cancer cells. Dr. Wordeman will describe, mechanistically, how small changes in microtubule assembly dynamics promote CIN and reveal evidence for unexpected pathways, such as DNA damage repair, that may directly impact cellular mictrotubule dynamics.
