Abstract

•Many auditory synapses are capable of unusually fast and reliable neurotransmission.•Ribbon synapses, endbulbs of Held, and calyces of Held are morphologically unique.•Mechanisms of synaptic transmission are also specialized in each of these synapses.•The molecular pathways that create these specializations are gradually being defined.
