5/18/17 1 Neurotransmission (chemical synapse) Key Players Neurotransmitters Synaptic vesicles: store neurotransmitters in cytoplasm of axon terminal Neurotransmitters:releasedby exocytosis when action potential arrives at terminal Voltage gatedCa 2+ channels open, allowing Ca 2+ toflow into the axon terminal (presynaptic cell) Vesicles fuse with membrane and release neurotransmitters into synaptic cleft Neurotransmission (chemical synapse) When stimulus subsides, no action potentials are generated, voltage gated Ca 2+ channels close Ca 2+ is pumped outside of the axon terminal, vesicles no longer fuse with membrane Any remaining neurotransmitters in the cleft diffuse away or are broken down
