Figure 397 from Chapter 15 (Cytoplasmic Inclusions) of 'The Cell, 2nd Ed.' by Don W. Fawcett M.D. Axosomatic and axodendritic synapses in the central nervous system of the rat. A nerve terminal in the center of the micrograph can be seen making contact with a cell body (occupying the lower right; arrows indicate two regions of apparent active zone contact. Notably, there is also synaptic contact by same axon with a dendrite to the left. A second axodendritic synapse is present at the top of the micrograph. Image by Enrico Mugnaini.
