Subcellular fractionation of the brain: preparation of synaptosomes and synaptic vesicles.

Abstract

The human brain is estimated to contain trillions of synaptic nerve terminals. These are the connections between neurons that are responsible for transmitting information and are modified as a result of learning. A valuable tool for studying synapses is the isolated nerve terminal, or synaptosome, which is obtained by homogenizing the brain in such a way… (More)
