Synaptic vesicle endocytosis

Definition

Synaptic vesicle endocytosis is the biological process by which the plasma membrane at the pre-synaptic axon terminal invaginates to create membrane-bound synaptic vesicles. This process enables the neuron to recover and recycle the membrane that is added to the plasma membrane during synaptic vesicle exocytosis.
