Axon Guidance, Synapse Formation and Regeneration

You are cordially invited to participate in the eighth meeting on Axon Guidance, Synapse Formation and Regeneration to be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The meeting will begin with dinner and the first session on the evening of Tuesday September 18 and will conclude after lunch on Saturday, September 22, 2012. The specific goals of this conference are to bring together a diverse group of scientists studying various molecular, cellular and genetic aspects of cell migration, axon guidance, synaptogenesis, and developmental plasticity of neural connectivity. This meeting is intended to provide a format for the exchange of ideas and information, to discuss the latest research findings and technical advances, and to facilitate the intellectual unification of research in this field.

Topics:
*Axon to Synapse I, II, III
Mechanisms of Guidance & Synaptogenesis

*Synapse to Circuit I, II
Plasticity of Synapses & Neural Circuitry

*Regeneration & Disease I, II
Mechanisms of Development and Disease
