SUMMARY

The contributions to this volume were presented at a Symposium entitled "Current Topics in Muscle and Nonmuscle Motility" held in Dallas 19-21 November 1980 under the auspices of the A. Webb Roberts Center for Conยญ tinuing Education, Baylor University Medical Center Dallas, and the Univerยญ sity of Texas Health Science Center at Dallas. This very useful opportunity for a group of active investigators in motility to meet and discuss their latest findings was made possible in part by the income from an endowment fund established by a generous gift from Dr. Albert P. D'Errico in the Baylor University Medical Center. Dr. D'Errico was the first formally-trained neurosurgeon to practice in the Dallas area, the first Chief of Neurological Surgery, and a member of the Medical Board of the Baylor University Mediยญ cal Center Dallas (1947 -1964). The income from this fund is used to promote the dissemination of up-to-date information in the Neurosciences, to provide intellectual stimulation, to add to the fund of knowledge, and improve the skills of neurosurgeons, neurologists, internists, and others in specialized fields of medicine. We are all indebted for this generous gift that made this enriching educational experience possible. We are also grateful for support the Symposium received from Electron Microscopy Sciences, Forma Scienยญ tific, J. E. O. L. USA, Inc. , Ladd Research Industries, M. J. O. Diatome Co. , Orยญ ganon Co. , Upjohn Co. , G. D. Searle & Co. , and Smith, Kline and French. Robert M
