Neuroanatomy Practical Exam Tour

Below is a picture of one of the 7th floor labs as it will look when set up for the Neuroanatomy Exam. The purpose of this tutorial is to give the student an idea of the presentation of material for the exam. The sample questions are indicative of the types of questions that will be asked on the exam. Please begin by this tour by reducing the size of this window (click on the rectangle in the upper right hand corner of your browser), then scroll to center the exam room so that you can view it at all times. Go to the table and pick up your copy of the exam.(All the links open up in a new window.) Leave both windows open as you proceed to take the exam.

Cells expressing wild-type paxillin (top) or paxillin lacking LD4 (bottom) were scratch-wounded followed by fixation 12 hours post-wounding. Tubulin (Green) and alpha-mannosidase II (Red) were labeled to note cell polarization and Golgi orientation. Cells expressing paxillin lacking LD4 are unable to reorient the Golgi towards the wound edge. From the lab of Christopher Turner, PhD.
