5) Therefore, studies examining CNS synapse formation were mainly conducted in a few specific types of synapses, namely, those in which presynaptic and postsynaptic
components are well-defined and both divergence and convergence of axonal projections are low, such as climbing fiber synapses on cerebellar Purkinje cells.
Effects of Ketamine on Spontaneous Excitatory Postsynaptic
Currents in the Primary Somatosensory Cortex
The suppression may occur in both presynaptic and postsynaptic
It must be noted that the r esponses of the GE and GI neurons can be biphasic, because of the existence of presynaptic inputs and postsynaptic
Subsequently, neurotransmitter is released into the synaptic cleft and diffuses to the postsynaptic
membrane to activate neurotransmitter receptors.
SNAP-23 is involved in functional regulation of postsynaptic
glutamate receptors, and is necessary to transfer membrane protein recycling (Suh et al.
Twenty chapters are divided into four parts: neurons: excitable and secretory cells that establish synapses; ionotropic and metabotropic receptors in synaptic transmission; somato-dendritic processing and plasticity of postsynaptic
potentials; the hippocampal network.
For the sake of simplicity, the design has omitted both the axon and axon-terminals as subelements, as the design allows the cell body of the presynaptic neuron directly assigns a stimulus to the dendrites of postsynaptic
The neurotransmitter binds to specific receptors in the postsynaptic
terminal, thereby acting as a "switch" for the postsynaptic
The released neurotransmitter binds to postsynaptic
receptors, leading to a response in the postsynaptic
They have been found on both pre-and postsynaptic
cells, and are expressed in epithelium, connective and muscle tissues.
Ammonia per se decreases postsynaptic
inhibition of cortical, spinal and trochlear motor neurons leading to severe tonic convulsions (Haliburton and Morgan, 1989).
