CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
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.
New Editors of Synapse
Peter Jenner is Emeritus Professor of Pharmacology at King’s College in London. He is a specialist in neurological and psychiatric diseases and in particular, the biochemistry and pharmacology of their underlying causes and treatments through the use of in vitro experimentation and in vivo modelling. Peter has a passion for translational research and possesses expertise in the major neurotransmitter networks in brain and the relationship to drug action, drug addiction and to imaging of receptor systems.
Henrique von Gersdorff
Henrique von Gersdorff earned a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Minnesota and a Ph.D. in Neurobiology from Stony Brook University in New York. He held postdoctoral fellowships at Stony Brook University and the Max-Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry (Department of Membrane Biophysics, Göttingen). He is a senior scientist at the Vollum Institute in Oregon Health and Sciences University (Portland, Oregon). He also holds a faculty appointment in the Cell and Developmental Biology department of OHSU. His major research interests are in synaptic physiology, short-term and long-term plasticity, sensory biophysics, ion channel modulation, and calcium dynamics in nerve terminals.
