Synapses of a living human brain.

Imaging synaptic density in the living human brain. Visualization of healthy or aberrant neuronal connections in the living brain—tissues is now possible using positron emission tomography (PET). The synaptic vesicle glycoprotein 2A (SV2A) radioligand [11C]UCB-J and PET offers a non-invasive method for quantifying synaptic density in the living human brain.
