The Drosophila larval neuromuscular junction (NMJ) has become one of the most powerful model systems to ask key neurobiological questions. This synapse is unparalleled by its accessibility, its simplicity, and the ability to manipulate genes important for synapse development and function. Its synapses have properties shared by many organisms including humans. The vast majority of genes that when mutated cause congenital disorders of the nervous system in humans, are present in the fruit fly genome, and fly models of human disorders are available. Thus, this preparation is a powerful tool to understand the normal function of these genes. This book reviews outstanding work by recognized leaders in the fields of Drosophila cellular neurogenetics including developmental neurobiology, mechanisms of synaptic function, and experience dependent changes at synapses. The book also includes step-by-step protocols to study the cellular biology of the NMJ, making it a vital resource for researchers beginning their investigations with this system, for those who are training students and postdoctoral fellows in this area, or simply as a general reference material for neuroscientists and neuroscience professors in general. * Provides a synthesis of the main topics in modern neurogenetics * Includes step-by-step protocols for the use of the Drosophila NMJ system in neurobiology lab research * Offers genetic approaches to study synapse development and function *

Chemical synapses are specialised junctions through which cells of the nervous system signal to one another and to non-neuronal cells such as muscles or glands. A chemical synapse between a motor neuron and a muscle cell is called a neuromuscular junction. This book presents the research trands in this field.

Quels sont les impacts psychologiques et sociologiques de La Guerre des boutons et d'Harry Potter ? Relisant le roman de Pergaud (1906) et le best-seller de Rowling (1997), les auteurs montrent l'évolution, depuis un siècle, de l'univers des adolescents, dans leur structuration du temps et de l'espace, dans leurs rapports au groupe et aux territoires. Ils analysent leur passage des savoir-faire concrets, tout proches de ceux des adultes, à l'imaginaire d'un monde virtuel. Ils interrogent, avec leur finesse de cliniciens, ces deux œuvres marquantes de la littérature sur ou pour la jeunesse, et illustrent leur propos d'histoires vécues d'adolescents d'aujourd'hui, dont ils éclairent les relations problématiques avec le monde adulte qui les entoure. Un ouvrage exempt de jargon, où la littérature apporte ses lumières à la psychologie. Une lecture fascinante pour tous ceux qui vivent près des adolescents, et cherchent à mieux les comprendre, et pour les adolescents eux-mêmes. Cet essai permettra d'articuler psychologie et littérature, et de comprendre l'influence des best-sellers jeunesse sur l'univers des adolescents et des enfants. A PROPOS DES AUTEURS Jean-Marie Gauthier est pédopsychiatre, Professeur de psychologie de l’enfant et de l’adolescent à l’Université de Liège. Psychanalyste, il s’intéresse particulièrement à l’apport de l’éthologie à la psychologie et à la psychopathologie de l’enfant. Il a déjà publié trois ouvrages chez Dunod, L’enfant malade de sa peau (1993), Le corps de l’enfant psychotique (1999) et L’observation en psychothérapie d’enfant (2002). Roger Moukalou est psychiatre et psychanalyste à Poitiers. Il poursuit des recherches dans le domaine de la littérature destinée aux jeunes et en particulier la BD, et dans le domaine de la psychosomatique avec le professeur Sami-Ali.

This new Springer volume, which comes complete with a free DVD, is a comprehensive and detailed overview of the synapse with emphasis on the glutamatergic synapse. Most chapters relate the synapse’s functional aspects to its molecular mechanisms. This approach shows which mechanisms are characterized on both the functional and structural level and can thus be considered firmly established. It’s an important text for neuroscientists and disease-oriented clinicians in neurology.

This Frontiers Research Topic on ‘Neural Circuits: Japan’ explores the diversity of neural circuit research occurring across Japan by innovative researchers using cutting-edge approaches. This issue has brought together papers revealing the development, structure, and physiology of neuronal circuits involved in sensory perception, sleep and wakefulness, behavioral selection, and motor command generation in a range of species from the nematode to the primate. Like the USA and Europe, Japan is now making a strong effort to elucidate neural circuit function in diverse organisms by taking advantages of optogenetics and innovative approaches for gene manipulation, traditional physiological and anatomical approaches, and neural pathway-selective inactivation techniques that have recently been developed in Japan.
