Do neurons aggregate certain dendrites to be near each other?

As I’ve been thinking about information traveling through a network (firstly as an abstract mathematical concept, and secondly as expressed in biological brains) I’ve began to feel it’s natural for neurons to somehow attempt to aggregate dendrites that spike together to the same locations on their neuronal bodies. It seems to me that the dendrites that don’t spike together should be spaced as far from all the other neurons as possible. This is all speaking from the point of view of the receiving neuron. Is there any support for this idea in the research?

Think of it from a neuron’s point of view, you’re a neuron. Imagine your getting all these signals all over your cell membrane at random. Sites/connections that spike together should be aggregated together and. Doesn’t it just feel that way to you, you can make sense of things that way. Anyway, sorry for the weird question. Thanks!

Absolutely. I came across a couple articles on this, below. The first isn’t well written because it’s not precise on its meaning of nerve cell. But you’ll get the idea. The second is well written and it looks at this phenomenon in terms of the forces a cell experiences at its boundaries and within the cell itself. Fascinating.
