Method Abstract:"From three-dimensional reconstructions of CA1 excitatory synapses in the rodent hippocampus and in culture, [investigators] have estimated statistical distributions of active zone and postsynaptic density (PSD) sizes (average area approximately 0.04 micron^2), the number of active zones per bouton (usually one), the number of docked vesicles per active zone (approximately 10), and the total number of vesicles per bouton (approximately 200), and [they] have determined relationships between these quantities, all of which vary from synapse to synapse but are highly correlated."
Comments p.5862 right column 6th paragraph:"Table 1 gives a summary of [investigators'] data both for the mouse brain synapses and for the rat hippocampal neurons in culture." See notes beneath table
