Synapse to it

Using the technique of electron microscopy, this is one of the first images ever taken that proved that the neurons do not physically touch. The space between the junctions of neurons is called the synapse and the work of Palade, de Robertis, and Bennett definitively proved this, thus validating the initial idea by Ramon Y Cajal (proposed in the early 1900s in his “Neuron Doctrine”). 1,289 more words
