Action potential reaches the axon terminalPresynapticneuronCalciumentrySynapticvesiclesPostsynapticneuronreceptorneurotransmitterDepolarization
Ca2+voltage gated channels open, and Ca2+flows into the axon terminalCa2+influx causes the synaptic vesicles to fuse with the plasma membrane andexocytose the neurotransmitters into the synaptic cleft.Neurostransmitter then diffuses and binds to specific receptors on the post synapticneuron.3.Three ways that a neurotransmitter effect can be terminated:
6.Which neurotransmitters are excitatory, inhibitory, both/either?
