(a review of material from lecture #11). these are sub-threshold changes in the membrane potential. what are excitatory post-synaptic potentials (EPSP’s) and where are they generated? what class of neurotransmitter evokes EPSP’s? what are inhibitory post-synaptic potentials (IPSP’s) and where are they generated? what class of neurotransmitter evokes IPSP’s? [2]. GENERATION OF AP’s AND THE IMPORTANCE OF POST-SYNAPTIC POTENTIALS. neurons receive excitatory synaptic input (EPSP’s) and inhibitory input (IPSP’s). EPSP’s
