News & Special Features


The editors of Synapse invite your submissions for publication in the following future special issues:

The Super-Resolution Revolution in Neuroscience: A focused issue on the impact and implementation of super-resolution microscopy techniques (e.g. PALM, STED, STORM, quantum dot imaging, EM tomography,...) in recent neuroscience research

The Precise Preservation of Spike Timing in Auditory Pathways: A focused issue on the synaptic and cellular specializations that allow auditory circuits to compute time differences with submillisecond accuracy

Lipids and Synaptic Vesicle Recycling at Active Zones: A focused issue on the role of specialized membrane lipids in synaptic vesicle exocytosis and endocytosis at active zones.

We welcome Original Research Articles, Short Communications representing data on research projects which have progressed to a point where the preliminary observations should be disseminated, and Review Articles covering timely topics in the field.
