Present and future of the study of extrasynaptic neurotransmission









Kavli Royal Society Centre, Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, MK16 9JJ


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

Event details

Since this will be the first meeting in this field in the UK, discussion sessions will focus on general and comparative mechanisms of release, experimental and analytical tools, and the search for effects and timing of extrasynaptic neurotransmission on the nervous system. Since the terminology in the field is confusing, the definition of general terms will be discussed. This meeting will also foster collaborations between individuals and groups.

Attending this event

This is a residential conference, which allows for increased discussion and networking. It is free to attend, however participants need to cover their accommodation costs if required.
