Spillover and multivesicular release are likely to occur at a variety of synapses in the CNS. Although the latter could enhance the former, neither appears to require the other, even though both affect neuronal communication. In two recent papers, new techniques, as well as the careful use of old standards, provide compelling evidence for these formerly heretical mechanisms.
