Synapses: Formation, Function and Misfunction
joint with Toward Defining the Pathophysiology of Autistic Behavior
Organizer(s): Matthew B. Dalva, Peter Scheiffele and Yishi Jin
Date: April 11 - 15, 2010
Location: Snowbird Resort, Snowbird, UT, USA
Supported by The Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
During the last half-decade, a host of cellular mechanisms guiding synapse development have been identified. Exciting new links are being forged between our growing understanding of the basic processes and certain diseases. A major driving force in current research of synapses is new technologies. We propose to develop a meeting that would focus on these areas. Our meeting will bring together scientists working on the basic biological questions of how synapses form in model organisms, the development of new technology, and those with interests in understanding the links to human diseases.
