Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor John Nicholls FRS and Professor Francisco F De-Miguel

Event Details

Recent experiments have shown that cell bodies and dendrites of neurons can liberate transmitter molecules.  In this discussion the mechanism of such release will be compared with that occurring in presynaptic terminals, glial cells and endocrine cells. A major focus will concern the way in which release from cell bodies influences essential functions of the central nervous system.
