   During the last half-decade, a host of cellular mechanisms guiding
   synapse development have been identified. Exciting new links are being
   forged between our growing understanding of the basic processes and
   certain diseases. A major driving force in current research of
   synapses is new technologies. We propose to develop a meeting that
   would focus on these areas. Our meeting will bring together scientists
   working on the basic biological questions of how synapses form in
   model organisms, the development of new technology, and those with
   interests in understanding the links to human diseases.
