Abstract

Protrusive behavior of dendritic spines on developing neurons has been previously suggested to mediate the formation of new axodendritic synaptic contacts. A study by Zito et al. in this issue of Neuron links actin polymerization in dendritic spines with the motility that the spines exhibit and the synapses that they form.
