Shape-shifting at a cerebellar synapse allows submillisecond signaling

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Synaptic currents become faster with age. A new study uses electron microscopy, physiology and modeling to show that the progressive speeding of AMPA receptor-mediated synaptic currents during development results from changes in the structure of the synapse rather than the composition of postsynaptic receptors.
