How a synapse stays stable when its proteins are renewedApril 30, 2014 [image: synapses-neurons-mpg] During the learning processes, extensions grow on neurons. Synapses are located at the end of these extensions (left: as seen in nature; right: reconstruction). (Credit: MPI of Neurobiology/ Meyer) Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology in Martinsried have found an explanation for how a synapse stays stable for a long time despite the fact that its proteins must be renewed regularly.
