We will use a layered approach to develop models of progressive increased complexity and focus, making the most of existing information. In the first instance we will reconstruct the complete synaptic interactome using protein interaction data obtained by WP1. This will provide a firmly grounded framework onto which we can build all further data and […]

Synaptic physiology

This section is instrumental in determining the role of specific synaptic proteins to the physiology of the synapse and in providing quantitative data on, e.g., the release of transmitter, the pre- and post-synaptic mechanisms of plasticity of the synapse. These data will form the basis for dynamic models to be generated in WP7. Also, this […]

Science explained

What is a Synapse? Major disorders of the Central Nervous System (CNS) affect one in three people in the developed world. You can think of diseases like major depression, schizophrenia, These diseases often seriously affect people in their work, social life and they form the largest burden on the healthcare systems of the EU. Most […]

General public

Synsys: A European expertise Network on building the synapse SynSys scientists have attracted money from the EU to do novel work on the synapse. Only by bringing together a large European group of specialists, each having their own expertise in synapse experiments and computation SynSys can achieve a new level of understanding of the synapse. […]
