Investigating the motion of synaptic vesicles in neurons
Project Description

The motion of synaptic vesicles play an important role in physiology of neuron. In particular the motion of synaptic vesicles during the stimulation of action potential in synaptic transmission. We are trying to find useful parameters of the motion of synaptic vesicles during stimulation using observed trajectories of synaptic vesicles.
