Quantitation of synaptic ultrastructural changes is of great importance in neurobiology, since merely qualitative alterations, if not extreme, are not readily detectable. In the present paper we discuss our previous and present findings on the number (numerical density: Nv), size (average length of the synaptic profiles: L) and surface contact area (surface… CONTINUE READING
