Dendrites are the branched projections of a neuron that receive signals from other neurons. They play an important role in the communication between neurons, as they are responsible for receiving and processing information from other cells and can highly specialized structures, with different shapes and sizes depending on the type of neuron they belong to. They have a complex network of proteins that allow them to detect changes in electrical potentials and transmit this information to the cell body. Dendritic spines also help increase the surface area available for synaptic contacts, allowing more efficient transmission of signals between neurons. In addition they can be modified by experience or learning, which is known as plasticity or neuroplasticity. This process allows dendrites to adapt their structure in response to new stimuli or experiences, allowing us to learn new things and form memories.
