Front Row Lecture Series

How experiences shape the developing brain and impact neurological diseases

Hollis Cline, PhD
Hahn Professor of Neuroscience
Chair, Department of Neuroscience
Director, Dorris Neuroscience Center

As we age, learn and grow over our lifetimes, the brain continually responds and adapts to what we experience. In this Front Row lecture, Scripps Research Chair of the Department of Neuroscience Hollis Cline revealed how sensory experiences shape the brain during development and aging—particularly visual experiences. Cline’s work has been critical in revealing how key visual brain circuits become disrupted in neurodevelopmental disorders, as well as in mapping the different communication pathways between neurons.
