Preparation of Synaptosomes from Postmortem Human Prefrontal Cortex

bioRxiv

Jun 24, 2014

Neil R Smalheiser, Giovanni Lugli

Abstract

Synaptosomes are a popular type of isolated synaptic fraction intensively used in neuroscience and cell biology. They are prepared by layering on density gradients and thought to consist largely of axonal endings with attached postsynaptic structures ([Morgan, 1976][1]), in contrast to ...read more

Formation of Synapses and Circuits

Synapses are crucial for the transmission of information within neural circuits. These specialized intercellular junctions are the basis for the formation of complex networks. Formation of these synapses involve numerous steps that are essential for transmission of information. Here is the latest research on formation of synapses and circuits.
