Abstract : This volume contains the proceedings of the first conference of the New York Academy of Sciences to be held in Japan. This conference took place at the Ibuka Memorial Hall of Waseda University, one of the oldest universities in Tokyo, and was organized in part by a group of researchers who were supported by the Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research in the Priority Area of 'Impulse signaling,' from the Japanese Ministry of Education, Science and Culture. The aim of the conference was to summarize recent advances in our understanding of signal transduction, from the receptors and effectors in this case the various ion channels of neurons, smooth or striated muscle cells, endocrine cells and other tissues.
