From 19th-century research to present-day studies, nerve cell regeneration has always had a place at the MBL and in the history of the “neuro” disciplines.
We seek to understand the history of neuron regeneration within biology over time. For instance, how have invertebrates and vertebrates differed in their contributions to neurobiology? And how can we characterize the crucial roles of less “standard” experimental organisms, such as many aquatic species, in neurobiology today and in the past?
