5th international Art of Neuroscience

The 5th annual Art of Neuroscience competition is now accepting submissions from neuroscientists worldwide. We are  calling upon you to submit spectacular images and/or movies depicting your work, or a neuroscientific concept and which illustrate the beauty of the brain. Two prices will be awarded each in the amount of 500€. One in the category best image, and one in the category best movie. Participants need to register to compete at our website: http://aon.nin.knaw.nl using their institution E-mails.


Release of chemical transmitters from cell bodies and dendrites of nerve cells

The release of serotonin from the cell body of a Retzius neuron in the nervous system of the leech. The original image was profduced by Professor Francisco F De Miguel and Professor John Nicholls

Recent experiments have shown that cell bodies and dendrites of neurons can liberate transmitter molecules.  In this discussion the mechanism of such release will be compared with that occurring in presynaptic terminals, glial cells and endocrine cells. A major focus will concern the way in which release from cell bodies influences essential functions of the central nervous system.
