Synapse density and perforated synapse density across ages and genotypes. No change in density of synapses (a) was found in 5-week-old mice (left) and 3-month-old mice (right). A significant increase in perforated synapses (b) is shown in 5-week-old Shank3 heterozygous mice (left), but no difference was seen at 3 months (right). Standard deviation indicated with vertical black lines, mean indicated by horizontal black line; *denotes significance
