Most synaptic excitatory connections are made on dendritic spines. But how the voltage in spines is modulated by its geometry remains unclear. In this talk I shall focus on possible impacts of the synapse geometry on its electrical properties that are surprisingly not well understood on a basic level. I will use as an example the dendritic spine which has a peculiar shape composed of a bulby head connected to a thin neck.
