A new review article Evolutionary origin of synapses and neurons – Bridging the gap by Pawel Burkhardt, Research Fellow at the MBA and Professor Simon Sprecher from the University of Fribourg is online now.

The review highlights the need to take an integrative approach that considers unicellular organisms (the ichthyosporeans, filastereans and choanoflagellates) as well as metazoans, in order to fully understand the evolutionary origin of synapses and neurons.
