About The Cover

The Gordon Research Conference on Synaptic Transmission meets 2 to 7 August 1998. The cover shows motor synapses in a thin muscle of the garter snake. Postsynaptic membranes of the muscle (green) oppose endocytic sites within boutons, which appear red after brief nerve stimulation in the presence of the activity-dependent probe sulforhodamine 101. The schedule of summer and international Gordon Conferences for 1998 appears on pages 1374-1386. [Image: H. Teng, J. Cole, R. Wilkinson, Washington University School of Medicine]
