This volume came out of discussions with Professeur Michel Fardeau my long-time colleague in Paris and now Directeur of the Institut de Myologie at the Hopital Pitie-Salpetriere there, and Professeur Emeritus Rene Couteaux, Universite de Paris VI. During my sabbatical year 1994-95, as Professeur de L'Academie des Sciences and Chaire Elf Aquitaine in Paris, Professeur Couteaux and I had a number of discussions, centering on the development of the field of synaptology from his perspective as one who had experienced many of the significant advances during his active professional career. Following these discussions, my colleagues, Daniel Hantai in Paris, and Bruce Citron in Kansas City, and I began to contact scientists in various areas of current synapse research. The result in this volume which seeks to incorporate studies in development, maintenance, and disease states. The foreword by Professeur Couteaux is a remarkable personal journey through the beginnings of this field up to the present day. Professeur Couteaux has continued to be active in his own research on the neuromuscular synapse to this day.
