A novel approach to correlative studies of neuronal structure and function. Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract We have recently organized and directed a consortium of manufacturers to assemble a unique electron microscopic-video-computer resource that reduces the time and effort required to make 3-dimensional reconstructions of neurons, and to collect and analyze data on synaptic organization by many fold. With the introduction of this system the quantitative study of synapses has entered a new age, characterized by a markedly increased efficiency that allows previously unrealistic studies to be carried out. In this …
