Nature Neuroscience, Published online: 28 September 2020; doi:10.1038/s41593-020-00716-1

Kusick et al. capture snapshots of synaptic vesicle docking and fusion using a new time-resolved electron microscopy technique. They find that vesicles are replaced milliseconds after they fuse, which may contribute to short-term synaptic plasticity.
