Dendritic Spines

The MIT Press

This chapter aims to explore the molecular components of the spine. It points out that significant overlap exists between molecular studies of spines and the molecular studies of synapses. This expands the literature on the topic of the molecular components of the spine, which can also be confusing. The chapter concludes by suggesting a possible functional interpretation of the molecular structure of the spines for future studies.

Keywords:   molecular components, synapses, spines
