From Underwater Mechanosensation to Preventing Neurodegeneration

Abstract

Sensing the spatiotemporal progression of stimuli is an important function of the vertebrate skin and hearing organs, but how directional mechanical stimuli are perceived by superficial receptors, coded by the underlying neuronal circuits and decoded in the brain remains mysterious. I will show our progress in understanding how zebrafish uses the mechanosensory lateral line to respond to changes in the direction of water flow. In addition, I will highlight how we are taking our fundamental discoveries in animals to tangible practical uses to address neurodegeneration in humans.
