LMB 365 – Day 87

This image for day 87 of #LMB365 shows a small portion of a neuron (brain cell). The spines coating the dendritic projections are the sites of synapses, through which the cell communicates with other neurons. The work in Ingo Greger’s group in the Neurobiology Division aims to understand the mechanisms through which the strength of communication at these sites is controlled, to allow information storage in the brain.
