A total of 212 dendritic spines (108 from the visual and 104 from cerebellar cortices of the mouse) were analyzed in serial sections. Dendritic spines (DS) and synaptic active zones (SAZ) were classified according to their shape, and the following quantitative data were measured: DS stalk and bulb diameters, DS length and volume, number of cisterns of the spine apparatus, DS and SAZ surface areas and their mutual proportions. Quantitative relationships between the spine apparatus and the size… CONTINUE READING
