Ethanol was shown to cause a redistribution of synaptic vesicles in incubated synaptosomes. While the number of synaptosomes containing vesicles attached to the presynaptic membrane decreased markedly; an increase in the number of synaptosomes lacking membrane-vesicle associations was observed, The findings support the possibility of a presynaptic action of ethanol and point to the role of membrane-attached vesicles in synaptic transmission.
