Abstract

Hippocampal cultures offer unique advantages for the study of neuronal development and synaptogenesis. Studies performed on this model enabled dissection of the temporal sequence of events which lead to the differentiation of pre- and postsynaptic compartments.

Key words. Synaptogenesis; hippocampal neurons; synaptic vesicles; glutamate receptors.
