Neuropeptides comprise the largest and most diverse class of neuromodulators and regulate a diverse array of critical processes. While their importance is well-established, fundamental questions about synthesis, processing, release, transmittal, reception, and signal transduction remain unanswered. Recent tool developments and advances in experimental and genetic techniques have the potential to transform our understanding of neuropeptide function from subcellular synthesis to behavioral output. Now is an ideal time to begin redefining our understanding of how neuropeptides layer with circuitry and metabolism to govern physiological functions and behavior.

This meeting will bring together researchers studying the influence of neuropeptide signaling on physiology and behavior at both the cellular and circuit level in a range of organisms and across disciplines, including experimental and computational tool developers. Through presentations and discussions, we look forward to 1) generating new questions and hypotheses about how neuropeptides regulate behavior and how they themselves are regulated, 2) identifying questions that emerging tools could be used to address, and 3) defining new tools and strategies for probing neuropeptide function.
