Abstract : The conference dealt with recent developments in the structure and function of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor and acetylcholinesterase. During the four day period, over 50 talks and 31 poster sessions were presented. The high caliber of the presentations combined with the limited number of attendees, and secluded site, allowed for much fruitful interaction an in-depth discussions. The sessions were divided into five major categories:'Synaptogenesis and Regulation.' 'Acetycholinesterase,' 'Presynaptic Mechanisms,'Signal Transduction and Modulation,' and 'Acetylcholine Receptor.' Keywords: Cholinergic synapses, Cholinergic receptors; Ion channels; Cholinergic neurotransmitters, Gene cloning.
