Neurotransmitter-containing synaptic vesicle (SV) fusion with the nerve terminal plasma membrane initiates neurotransmission in response to neuronal excitation. Under mild stimulation, the fused vesicular membrane is retrieved via kiss-and-run and/or clathrin-mediated endocytosis, which is sufficient to maintain recycling of SVs. When neurons are challenged(More)
Vesicle recycling is pivotal for maintaining reliable synaptic signaling, but its basic properties remain poorly understood. Here, we developed an approach to quantitatively analyze the kinetics of vesicle recycling with exquisite signal and temporal resolution at the calyx of Held synapse. The combination of this electrophysiological approach with electron(More)
