Professor Carla Shatz, Professor of Biology and of Neurobiology and the Director of Bio-X at Stanford University, discusses research results that show that Major Histocompatability Class I and PirB genes, thought previously to function only in immunity, act at neuronal synapses to limit how much - or how quickly - synapse strength changes in response to new experience. Changes in their function could contribute to developmental disorders such as Schizophrenia, and even to the synapse loss in Alzheimer’s Disease.
Part of the Inaugural Symposium of Stanford Neurosciences Institute recorded on October 9, 2014.
