Dynamic Synapse
Molecular Methods in Ionotropic Receptor Biology
edited by Josef Kittler

Dynamic Synapse explores the diverse tools and technologies used to study synaptic processes.

Features:

  • Introduces the application of cutting-edge approaches to the study of synapse and receptor biology
  • Describes recent advances in the use of proteomics approaches for studying the complement of proteins in the post-synaptic density
  • Highlights tools and techniques for studying the membrane trafficking and surface localization of receptors, including biochemical, optical, and electrophysiological approaches
  • Explores the use of RNAi technologies for knocking down expression levels of target proteins of interest
  • Discusses approaches for transfecting neural tissue, from the introduction of cDNAs into primary neuronal cultures to transfecting neurons in brain slices and nerve cells in vivo
  • Includes coverage of methods for achieving long-term alterations in the genetic complement of neurons
