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.
