The structural properties of the lipids forming biological membranes determine a very high level of lateral organization within membranes. Lipid-driven membrane organization allows the segregation of membrane-associated components into membrane lipid domains, now worldwide known as lipid rafts, acting as dynamic platforms for signal transduction, protein processing and membrane turnover. Many processes necessary to the correct functions of nervous system occur in lipid rafts and
