The topic of this year’s annual McGovern symposium was neuromodulators, the ever-expanding list of signaling molecules that shape how neurons respond to neurotransmitters. The eight speakers, who were from the US, Israel and China, discussed how neuromodulators control almost every aspect of behavior, including breathing, feeding, sleep, social and reproductive behavior.
