neuromodulator

/neu·ro·mod·u·la·tor/ (-mod´u-la″ter) a substance, other than a neurotransmitter, released by a neuron and transmitting information to other neurons, altering their activities.

neuromodulator

(no͝or′ō-mŏj′ə-lā′tər, nyo͝or′-)
n.
A chemical substance or medical device that affects synaptic transmission in nerve cells.

neuromodulator

a substance that alters nerve impulse transmission.

neuromodulator

A neuroregulator (e.g., endorphins, substance P) that can act locally on other neurons or at a distance, increasing or decreasing the effect of neurotransmitters, but which does not itself initiate depolarisation.

neuromodulator

A substance that, while not affecting the rate of firing or conduction of nerve impulses, can change the effect on a nerve of other neurotransmitters. Neuromodulators can control neurotransmitter synthesis or the amounts of neurotransmitter released in response to other stimuli. Adenosine is an example of a neuromodulator.
