Description

Organization Overview

Our research is aimed at the identification of molecular mechanisms that control development and dysfunction of the mammalian cerebellum. We have chosen to study the cerebellum because it is a complex and highly stereotyped structure in which major pattern formation and functional organization occur postnatally. During the past century,classical neuroanatomical studies have very precisely described the complex events that must occur for formation of this brain structure,providing what might be considered as the most detailed information available concerning the development of a given brain region. An extensive literature has documented the importance of cell-cell interactions in the development and maintenance of normal cerebellar architecture,although the mechanisms mediating these interactions remain unknown. Identification of these mechanisms,and analysis of their functions throughout the central nervous system (CNS),are major priorities of the Heintz laboratory.
