The focus of the conference was on mechanisms of neural plasticity. The scope of the conference was deliberately broad, so that a range of neuroscientists could be exposed to ongoing work in areas that they might not otherwise be aware of, but which might have import for their own studies. Thus anatomists, may benefit from principles used in biochemical or neurophysiological studies, and vice versa. The sessions were informal and concentrated on Factors Affecting the Duration of the Critical Period in the Visual System Phosphoinositides as Second Messengers formation of New Functional Circuits-Formation of new neural connections Method of Assessing Changes of Neural Connectivity Regulation of Neurotransmitter and Hormone Receptors Modulators of Simple Neuronal Systems Molecular Models of Learning Role of Biogenic Amines and Endorphins in Neuroplasticity and Molecular Aspects of Nerve Growth.
