Presynaptic Terminal


General Director:
Bert Sakmann (Max Planck Institute, Heidelberg)

Micha Spira (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem)


This school will review the current understanding of the mechanisms underlying neurotransmitter release from the presynaptic terminal and its assembly. A group of leadings scientists, with expertise in cell biology, molecular biology, ultra-structure physics and mathematical modeling, will analyze the field's history, current approach and future areas of research.
