Synapse-to-synapse variation in mean synaptic vesicle size and its relationship with synaptic morphology and function.


Synaptic vesicle (SV) size is one parameter that controls the amount of neurotransmitter released from individual SVs and, therefore, is fundamental to our understanding of synaptic function. The recently discovered variability of mean SV size among excitatory hippocampal synapses -- if actively regulated -- is a potential mechanism for the regulation of… (More)
