The equivalent of the PSP at nerve-muscle synapses is called the end-plate potential.
The signal degrades across the dendrite such that the more proximal connections have more of an influence. Alterations of these interactions, however, may result in epilepsy and various forms of psychiatric diseases. Vida I. An extension of feedback inhibition is lateral inhibition. Tips For Editing.
Thus, the neuron is inhibited indirectly. Understanding the synaptic, molecular mechanisms of inhibition and deciphering how these elementary processes contribute to the complex dynamics of neuronal networks remain an important agenda for future research. Neurons with different levels of complexity in their dendritic arbors or neurons with similar geometry but different distribution of ion channels generate uniquely different outputs in response to the same input.
The conductance-dominated phase is spatially focal. Anonymous Accepted on: The same asymmetry can be produced if the input to neuron A arrives slightly earlier than the input to B.
Pouille F. The strength of the EPSP depends on the distance from the soma.
You can make it easier for us to review and, hopefully, publish your contribution by keeping a few points in mind. A typical neuron has a cell body containing a nucleus and two or more long fibres.
Over the years, several other simplified spiking models have been designed. Spatial and temporal summation can occur simultaneously.
GABAB receptors , but also for a variety of other transmitters such as muscarinic acetylcholine receptors and adenosine receptors.
