Reproduction is governed by the coordinated secretion of hormones from the brain and pituitary. These hormones, GnRH and LH, are released in discrete "pulses", whose unique pattern is regulated by numerous factors. Mechanisms by which endocrine and brain signals modulate reproductive hormone pulses in mouse models will be discussed.

Restoring lost function after spinal cord injury or other types of CNS injuries is one of the major challenges of contemporary neuroscience. Functional deficits after such injuries are primarily due to a disruption of axonal connections. I will present our findings how to promote axon regeneration and how to activate spared yet silent connections after injury.
