Synapses have been classified into type I and type II synapses by Gray, and in a review by Eccles it was suggested that the type I synapse could be excitatory, and the type II inhibitory in function. Another possible relation between morphology and function has been demonstrated by Uchizono and Bodian. They have shown that some boutons contain spheroidal (S-type) and other flat (F-type) vesicles, and that S-type boutons make synaptic contact at sites known to receive an excitatory input. and F-type boutons at sites receiving an inhibitory input.
