Spine structure is the shape and composition of a dendritic spine. Dendritic spines are small protrusions from the dendritic shaft. Although their structure is variable, a typical spine consists of a spine head that may be mushroom- or cup-shaped and a thinner neck region. Each spine contains elements of the postsynaptic apparatus.
