Spine plasticity articles from across Nature Portfolio

Spine plasticity is the biological process by which neuronal activity leads to short- or long-term changes in the morphology, appearance or disappearance of dendritic spines – the specialized protrusions on a neuron’s dendrites that are the sites of excitatory synaptic input. Spine plasticity has been implicated in mediating synaptic plasticity.
