The plasticity of synaptic transmission efficacy plays a central role during neuronal development for the refinement of neuronal circuits and at all ages for the short and long term storage of memories and their erasure. Defects in synapse function and their altered plasticity is thought to be the primary cause of several brain disorders. Despite its recognized importance and decades of investigations by hundreds of laboratories, the molecular and cellular basis of the various forms of synaptic plasticity still remain largely mysterious.
This conference proposes to bring together among the most famous international and French experts on the molecular and cellular basis of synaptic plasticity, with a focus on its relation to memory. We will gather experts from neurotransmitter receptor structure, synapse nanoscale organization, synapse physiology to signaling and molecular mechanisms as well as the latest advances in our understanding of the tri-partite synapse mechanisms involved in synaptic plasticity and thus memory. Our speaker list is a harmonious balance between young and more established investigators, respecting diversity and gender balance.
