Editorial Reviews

Conference presentations are grouped into six sections on: molecular and cellular aspects of central and peripheral nervous system development; hormones, neurotransmitters, xenobiotics, and development; in vivo and in vitro models of development; development and regulation of glia; regeneration; and aging. Development is covered in four out of the six sections, reflecting the analogies between the problem of remodeling and plasticity in the mature nervous system, and the development of the nervous system circuitry during ontogeny.
