The research explores the changes in synapses in zebrafish during different sleep-wake states. It specifically examines how sleep impacts the number and strength of synapses in neurons, proposing that not all sleep stages are equally effective in synaptic homeostasisā€”the process by which the brain maintains a balance in synaptic strength.
