Official Information:

Endocannabinoid-mediated retrograde signaling is a fundamental counterpart of anterograde synaptic transmission throughout the CNS. However, despite decades of dedicated research, our understanding of the governing principles of endocannabinoid signaling at the molecular, synaptic and circuit levels has remained rather limited.

The major objective of the 2019 Cannabinoid Function in the CNS Gordon Research Conference is to showcase unpublished research data addressing the burning questions of cannabinoid research.
