From the 19th-century to today, nerve cell regeneration has had a place at the MBL and in the history of the “neuro” disciplines.
We seek to understand the history of neuron regeneration over time. How have invertebrates and vertebrates differed in their contributions to neurobiology? How can we characterize the crucial roles of less “standard” experimental organisms, such as many aquatic species, in neurobiology today and in the past? What makes neuron regeneration such an exciting research topic in biology and medicine?
