The human brain goes through prolonged development in both structural and functional organizations. I will first discuss the development of the intrinsic functional organization of the brain. I will then present results on the development of memory systems in the brain.
Humans develop the extraordinary ability to exert control over their behavior, thoughts and emotions. Come hear how environmental and genetic factors influence executive control and can lead to success in many domains.

David Wolfe, Ph.D., ABPP established and heads the Centre for Prevention Science and is Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology at the University of Toronto. His research and clinical interests focus on prevention of child abuse, dating violence, and related risk behaviors through universal education programs.
Recent advances in the cell biology of E. coli RNAP and the nucleoid have shown that the distribution of RNAP, which is coupled to cell growth, plays an important role in the nucleoid dynamic structure. Emerging evidence indicates that formation of the transcription foci centered at the putative bacterial nucleolus is critical in nucleoid remodeling and influencing global gene expression. The interface between the distribution of RNAP and nucleoid organization in the cell will be discussed.
