  • The brain is a complex organ, responsible for the most important tasks performed by humans and animals. Neurons are an extraordinary type of brain cells. Their particular shape, with dendrites and axons that extend over long distances, allows one neuron to communicate with a neighboring neuron or with neurons that are far apart. Communication between neurons occurs through synapses. To ensure faithful communication between neurons, synapses must be correctly located and assembled. Trafficking… CONTINUE READING
