Neuropeptides are a diverse assemblage of signalling molecules that have key roles in the regulation of behaviour. Understanding the evolutionary relationships and functions of the plethora of neuropeptides has presented a considerable challenge to biologists. This meeting brought together bioinformaticians, structural biologists, neurophysiologists and evolutionary/behavioural biologists to discuss the recent advances that are transforming our knowledge of neuropeptide signalling.
Speaker abstracts and audio recording of the presentations are available below.
Three review articles based on this meeting have now been published: Evolution of neuropeptide signalling systems, The long and the short of it – a perspective on peptidergic regulation of circuits and behaviour and New techniques, applications and perspectives in neuropeptide research.
