The invagination of excess surface area by shrinking neurons.

Abstract

Over most of their surface, neurons are surrounded by a narrow extracellular gap across which they make adhesive cell-cell contacts. Thus constrained, how do they regulate their geometry when osmotically perturbed? Specifically, are there any interesting consequences of local osmosis in such conditions? Using confocal imaging of shrinking neurons in culture… (More)
