The Abstracts of the 2nd Workshop Neurogenetics in Munich , October 
19-21, 1995, the Annual Meeting of the German Society of Neurogenetics 
are available at http://www.informatik.uni-rostock.de/HUM-MOLGEN/DGNG/.

 The German Society of Neurogenetics was founded in 1994. Its main
 objective is the enhancement of scientific exchange between all
 those disciplines that address questions on the genetics of normal
 and abnormal function of the nervous system. Consequently, its
 members come from many diverse fields of scientific enquiry such as
 Biophysics, Human Genetics, Cell Biology, Neuroanatomy,
 Neurochemistry, Neurosurgery, Neurology, Neuropathology and
 Psychiatry. The Society organizes yearly workshops to discuss
 scientific breakthroughs in the field. Here, international invited
 speakers guarantee the highest possible scientific standard.
 Furthermore, the society issues at least two yearly newsletters.
 While the first two newsletters were written in German, future
 communications will be in English. The statutes of the society,
 copies of all newsletters and a registration form can be obtained
 at: http://www.med.uni-giessen.de/genetik/dgng.html
