definitionSynaptic component; electron dense cytoskeletal specialization located on the post synaptic membrane at the site of synaptic contact. The PSD is particularly prominent in glutamatergic synapses, giving the synapse an asymmetrical appearance. This type of PSD is often referred to as "asymmetrical" or Gray's Type 1 (Maryann Martone, from the CCDB Dictionary).
