Learning-Dependent Dendritic Spine Plasticity Is Reduced in the Aged Mouse Cortex
TLDR
The results demonstrate the effects of aging on learning-dependent synapse remodeling and neuronal activity in the living cortex and suggest that synaptic deficits may contribute to age-related learning impairment.
Long‐term stability of axonal boutons in the mouse barrel cortex
TLDR
It is found that the turnover of axonal boutons was significantly higher in 3‐week‐old young mice than in adult mice (older than 3 months) and this long‐term stability of synaptic connections is likely important for reliable sensory processing in the mature somatosensory cortex.
Pyramidal Neurons in Different Cortical Layers Exhibit Distinct Dynamics and Plasticity of Apical Dendritic Spines
TLDR
Data reveal distinct dynamics and plasticity of apical dendritic spines on PNs in different layers in the living mouse cortex, which may arise from their distinct functional roles in cortical circuits.
Remodeling of Synaptic Structure in Sensory Cortical Areas In Vivo
TLDR
The data suggest that changes in network function during adult learning and memory might occur through changes in the strength and efficacy of existing synapses as well as some remodeling of connectivity through the loss and gain of synapses.
Changes in dendritic morphology and spine density in motor cortex of the adult rat after stroke during infancy
TLDR
The observation that increases in spine density do not necessarily coincide with increases in dendritic length suggests that the two processes may not be dependent on one another and suggest two independent plasticity processes responding to damage.
Long-term sensory deprivation prevents dendritic spine loss in primary somatosensory cortex
TLDR
Trans transcranial two-photon microscopy is used to visualize postsynaptic dendritic spines in layer I of the barrel cortex in transgenic mice expressing yellow fluorescent protein to suggest that experience plays an important role in the net loss of synapses over most of an animal's lifespan, particularly during adolescence.
Dendritic spine dynamics.
TLDR
In vivo time-lapse imaging of dendritic spines in the cerebral cortex suggests that, although spines are highly plastic during development, they are remarkably stable in adulthood, and most of them last throughout life.
Dendritic BDNF Synthesis Is Required for Late-Phase Spine Maturation and Recovery of Cortical Responses Following Sensory Deprivation
TLDR
The results indicate that dendritic BDNF synthesis is required for spine pruning, late-phase spine maturation, and recovery of cortical responsiveness following sensory deprivation following Sensory experience in early postnatal life.
Extensive Turnover of Dendritic Spines and Vascular Remodeling in Cortical Tissues Recovering from Stroke
TLDR
In vivo two-photon imaging used to examine changes in dendritic and vascular structure in cortical regions recovering from stroke provides a structural framework for understanding functional and behavioral changes that accompany brain injury and suggest new targets that could be exploited by future therapies to rebuild and rewire neuronal circuits lost to stroke.
Alterations of dendritic protrusions over the first postnatal year of a mouse: an analysis in layer VI of the barrel cortex
TLDR
It is suggested that the dendritic protrusions in layer VI barrel cortex pyramidal neurons are not static, and their density as well as relative morphological distribution change over time.

Long-term dendritic spine stability in the adult cortex
TLDR
It is shown that filopodia-like dendritic protrusions, extending and retracting over hours, are abundant in young animals but virtually absent from the adult, providing a potential structural basis for long-term information storage.
Transient and Persistent Dendritic Spines in the Neocortex In Vivo
The Dynamics of Dendritic Structure in Developing Hippocampal Slices
TLDR
Time-lapse fluorescence confocal microscopy was used to directly visualize the formation and dynamics of postsynaptic target structures (i.e., dendritic branches and spines) on pyramidal neurons within developing hippocampal tissue slices, revealing a highly dynamic state of post synapse target structures that may actively contribute to the formation of synaptic connections during CNS development.
Long-term in vivo imaging of experience-dependent synaptic plasticity in adult cortex
TLDR
The measurements suggest that sensory experience drives the formation and elimination of synapses and that these changes might underlie adaptive remodelling of neural circuits.
Morphological changes in dendritic spines associated with long-term synaptic plasticity.
TLDR
There is no evidence that changes in the morphology of spines after LTP are necessary or sufficient for the induction or maintenance of LTP, but a strong correlation between synaptic plasticity and morphological changes in spines is shown.
Synaptic dynamism measured over minutes to months: age-dependent decline in an autonomic ganglion
TLDR
The pattern of synaptic branches underwent significant rearrangements over several weeks in young adult mice, providing direct evidence for a decrease in plasticity of interneuronal connections as animals make the transition from young adulthood to middle age.
Structural basis of long-term potentiation in single dendritic spines
TLDR
The results indicate that spines individually follow Hebb's postulate for learning and suggest that small spines are preferential sites for long-term potentiation induction, whereas large spines might represent physical traces of long- term memory.
In vivo imaging of synapse formation on a growing dendritic arbor
TLDR
A 'synaptotropic model' in which synapse formation can direct dendrite arborization is supported, in which almost all synapses form initially on newly extended dendritic filopodia.
Induction of Multiple Synapses by Experience in the Visual Cortex of Adult Rats
TLDR
Apparent tendency to reutilize presynaptic processes may indicate a constraint upon the formation of neural circuitry and a fundamental form of plastic synaptic change in adult rats following 60 days of housing in standard laboratory cages or in complex environments.
