AJthough many of these proteins-isoforms of actin, tubulin, myosin, and several others-are found in other cells, their distinctive organization in neurons is critical for the stability and function of neuronal processes and synaptic junctions. The various filaments, tubules, subcellular motors, and scaffolding proteins of the neuronal cytoskeleton orchestrate many functions, including the growth of axons and dendrites; the trafficking and appropriate positioning of membrane components, organelles, and vesicles; and the active processes of exocytosis and endocytosis underlying synaptic communication.

The drawings are not all at the same scale. -Axon * The spirited debate occasioned by the contrasting views represented by Golgi and Cajal in the early twentieth century set the course of modern neuroscience. Based on light microscopic examination of nervous tissue stained with silver salts according to Golgi's pioneering cell-staining method, Cajal argued persuasively that nerve cells are discrete entities, and that they communicate with one another by means of specialized contacts, which Sherrington called synapses.
