EM of Synaptic Vesicle Pools

The project relies heavily on the use of the photoconversion (or photo-oxidation) technique, in which fluorescent compounds are rendered into electron microscopy markers. Thus, the recycling of synaptic vesicles can be followed in several different preparations, offering an ultrastructural counterpart for the STED studies.
