This chapter reviews studies that have looked at spine motility and addressed what function it has. Data were gathered from the discussion of spine and filopodial motility, their phenomenology and regulation. Findings showed that motility serves to improve synaptogenesis by allowing spines and filopodia to contact more axons.

Keywords:   spine motility, filopodial motility, synaptogenesis
