Every production process, be it cellular or industrial, depends on a constant supply of energy and resources. Synapses, specialized junctions in the central nervous system through which neurons signal to each other, are no exception to this rule. In order to form new synapses and alter the strength of synaptic transmission, neurons need a regulatory mechanism to deliver and remove synaptic proteins at synaptic sites. Neurons make use of active transport driven by molecular motor proteins to… CONTINUE READING
