Abstract Text  Recent studies of neural recognition molecules have revealed similarities between their functions during ontogenetic development and in neural plasticity in the adult. Observations both at the cellular level in vitro and at the behavioural level in vivo suggest that altered recognition molecule expression can lead to changes in synaptic efficacy, and alterations in synaptic function in turn evoke changes in recognition molecule expression. These changes can manifest themselves as morphological alterations and modulations of the synapse's signal transduction machinery. Issue  5
