- Synapses are the specialized junctions between nerve cells and play a fundamental role in the organization of brain circuits and behaviour. A hallmark of synapses is their complexity in numbers and molecular composition.
- The synaptome is the complement or catalog of synapse types and synaptome maps describes the anatomical distribution of synapse types in the brain.
- We have developed a method to analyze and map the molecular composition of individual synapses and characterized synaptome maps of the whole mouse brain.
