UK MMSG Neurons Follow-up Meeting 2010

The meeting took place at Imperial College, on Monday 10th May 2010, as part of the UK Mathematics-in-Medicine Study Groups series. This was a follow-up meeting, inspired by the problem Measuring vesicular release from neurons, which was studied at the UK MMSG Imperial College 2009.

In the morning, participants from the study group reported on the progress that had been made at and following the meeting. In the afternoon, future directions for investigating the effect of ageing on the transmission of signals between neurons were discussed, with a view to writing a grant proposal. Areas for investigation and mathematical modelling included clearance (re-uptake) efficiency, vesicle wall transporters, vesicle size, membrane rigidity, and the concentration and amount of neurotransmitter released.
