A fine branching structure at the end of a nerve fiber.
- Distally, each axon breaks up into simple or complex arborizations, the telodendria, which end on other neurons, glands, or muscle.
- Both cell lines display a rather immature morphology, although in response to various molecules they can grow neuritic processes with terminal arborization.
- Furthermore, morphological studies have shown that activity can alter the structure of the postsynaptic cell by increasing spine density and even the extent of dendritic arborization.
