Understanding the detailed molecular events that support chemical synaptic transmission requires high-resolution methods that provide quantitative information combined with molecular specificity. In recent years, many new technological approaches, including genetically encoded fluorescent indicators, ultra-thin sectioning, and live-cell imaging have been brought to bear on understanding the cell biology and physiology of presynaptic terminals.
