Temporal control of neuronal maturation in adult hippocampal neurogenesis
Precise regulation of maturation and functional integration of newborn neurons is essential for adult hippocampal neurogenesis-dependent memory formation. ß-catenin/ Wnt-signaling is one promising candidate for molecular regulation of this key developmental step. In my research I aim to analyze the expression on ß-catenin/ Wnt-signaling throughout the process of adult neurogenesis and, in detail, its functional role in maturation of adult-born neurons.
