Gregor Eichele, Ph.D.
Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, Germany

Seminar will be held in Psychology Building, Room 101 at 4:00 p.m.

Title: "Active matter: intertwined cilia domains orchestrate complex fluid flow in the mammalian brain"

Abstract: "Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) conveys many physiologically important signaling factors through the ventricular cavities of the brain. We investigated the transport of CSF in the third ventricle of the mouse and rat and discovered a highly organized pattern of cilia modules collectively giving rise to a network of fluid flows that allows for precise transport and cargo delivery within this ventricle. We also discovered a cilia-based switch that periodically alters the flow pattern so as to create a dynamic subdivision that may control cargo distribution in the third ventricle. Our work suggests that ciliated epithelia sustain hydrodynamic regulation of transport of CSF components"
