Synapses, Meninges, & Receptors

Postsynaptic events: Neurotransmitter binding results in a proportional ion flux across the postsynaptic membrane. The particular excitability effect depends on the nature of the ion flux which depends on the nature of the ion channels in the particular postsynaptic membrane, i.e., — in the resting ...

Page 12. Excitatory and Inhibitory Neurotransmitters in the CNS

• Glutamate acts directly on ion channels that permit passage of both sodium and potassium, producing fast excitatory postsynaptic potentials. • The major inhibitory neurotransmitters in the central nervous system are GABA and glycine.

Synaptic Transmission

"Response of the Postsynaptic Cell • We have examined the mechanism of synaptic transmission. • Now let's look at the consequences of synaptic activity on the postsynaptic cell.

Introduction The postsynaptic site of the excitatory asymmetric synapse is characterized by an electron-dense structure known as the postsynaptic density (PSD), which is attached to the
