Mechanical Actions Of Dendritic-Spine Enlargement On Presynaptic Exocytosis

Communication between neurons in the brain is generally associated with electrochemical signaling. Haruo Kasai’s laboratory discovered that dendritic spines could be stimulated to enlarge rapidly, which at the time they hypothesized could result in pressing against the presynaptic boutons in the synaptic junction and elicit an effect; however, at the time the tools to effectively investigate this phenomenon wasn’t available. In this recent study, the group validated their theory that physical forces elicited by dendritic spine enlargement can produce mechanosensory force signals in presynaptic boutons.
