PKM Restricts Dendritic Arbor Growth by Filopodial and Branch Stabilization within the Intact and Awake Developing Brain

Our November Journal Club will be happening on Monday, Nov 4, from 6-7pm in PCOH 1003!

For next week’s Journal Club, we will be going over a paper on the effects of PKM (a type of kinase) on filopodial dendritic arbor growth. It’s a really neat paper that looks at the molecular mechanisms underlying neuronal maturation during early brain development. So if you’re interested in neurons and cool images, come and check the journal club out!

Read the paper here! Try to at least skim it before the meeting to get familiar with the concepts and figures.

Don’t worry if you didn’t make it to the last meeting – everyone is welcome! This event requires paid membership to attend. Membership is only $5, and will grant you free entry into all of our events until the end of the academic year! Hope to see you all there!

Come to Research Night

The UBC Neuroscience Club will be hosting our very first Research NightMonday Oct 28th from 6-7pm in PCOH 1003! 

We will be having a panel featuring some of UNC’s executive team, speaking about their experience in Neuroscience research labs at UBC! The panelists come from diverse backgrounds, with experience in COGS, Behavioural Neuroscience, Public Health, and Biology research, that they became involved in through Directed Studies, WorkLearn, Volunteering, and Summer Positions. Come by to hear about all of the ways you can get involved in research at UBC!

This event is FREE for all members, and $2 for non-members. Memberships will also be sold at the event, which will grant you free entry to UNC events all year long!
