  • Publisher Summary This chapter reviews what is currently known and unknown about gap junction expression in neurons. Gap junctions were traditionally identified by their characteristic structural features when viewed with thin section electron microscopy. They appear as a close apposition of thickened plasma membranes separated by a small (2–3 nm) gap of extracellular space. The chapter discusses the composition of neuronal gap junctions, the functions of neuronal gap junctions acting as… CONTINUE READING
