Measurement of Silent Synapses

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, we describe the approaches that can be implemented to estimate the level of excitatory silent synapses. For each approach, there are technical considerations, which we describe at the end of the chapter. However, before laying out the experimental design, we provide a brief description of silent synapses as well as their functional role in physiology.
