We will investigate how a neural stem cell makes the decision of becoming a neuron during development by studying the Notch signaling pathway. Effectors of the Notch pathway have been shown to oscillate in neural stem cells and to become stable as cells become neurons (Shimojo et al. Neuron 2008). We want to model this phenomenon using dynamical systems and bifurcation theory.
