Abstract

In contrast to chemical synapses, less is known regarding the determinants of the strength of electrical synapses. New evidence from Szoboszlay et al. (2016) shows that the number of gap junctions is the dominant factor underlying the strength of electrical coupling between cerebellar interneurons.
