We would like to draw your attention on the coming CNS meeting workshop
about structural plasticity:

Workshop announcement CNS*2006 meeting, Edinburgh 
Modelling structural plasticity and neural development

M. Butz, Neuroanatomy, University of Bielefeld & 
A. van Ooyen, CNCR, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Structural plasticity in terms of neurite outgrowth, synapse formation,
synaptic regression and turnover as well as neurogenesis and apoptosis
is crucial for neural development during ontogeny and even for network
reorganizations in the mature brain. During development, progressive and
regressive events go hand-in-hand to form a homeostaically stable
network structure. The workshop is in order to discuss the biological
background as well as current theoretical approaches that shed a light
to the dynamic of those morphogenetic processe. Besides very different
theoretical as well as experimental talks (30 minutes) there will be
plenty room for discussion (15 minutes after each talk)
