Learning Objectives
Blueprint ID Learning Objectives
7135 Contrast the cell-to-cell spread of electrical signal at a chemical synapse with that at a gap junction based on speed and fidelity (success rate).
7136 Describe the process of neurotransmitter release, listing in correct temporal sequence events beginning with the arrival of a wave of depolarization at the pre-synaptic membrane and ending with a post-synaptic response and termination of transmission.
7137 Describe the ionic basis for inhibitory and excitatory post-synaptic potentials, and how this contributes to synaptic integration (summation).
7138 Describe different classes of neurotransmitters, including synthetic pathways, and corresponding receptors.
7139 Describe the receptor types and mechanisms of signal transduction involved during synaptic transmission. Compare ionotropic and metabotropic receptors.
7140 Describe synaptic modulation and plasticity.
