Why size matters - balancing mitochondrial dynamics in Alzheimer's disease.

Abstract

Once perceived as solitary structures, mitochondria are now recognized as highly dynamic, interconnected organelles. The tight control of their fusion and fission, a process termed 'mitochondrial dynamics', is crucial for neurons, given their unique architecture and special energy and calcium-buffering requirements at the synapse. Interestingly, in… (More)
