"... In a two-stage integration model, inputs contribute directly to dendritic spikes, and outputs from multiple branches sum in the axon. ... We used serial-section electron microscopy to reconstruct individual apical oblique dendritic branches of CA1 pyramidal neurons and observe a synapse distribution consistent with the two-stage integration model. Computational modeling suggests that the observed synapse distribution enhances the contribution of each dendritic branch to neuronal output."
