Synaptic Trans.

Basic Synaptic Events

What does the arrival of AP's at the PREsynapse cause? Ca++ INFLUX
What causes the Synaptic Vesicles to rupture? AP --> Ca++ INFLUX
What happens when the Synaptic Vesicles rupture? DIFFUSION of Neurotransmitter across Synaptic Cleft --> POSTsynaptic Reactive Sites
What does the Neurotransmitter do? changes Ion Permeability of POSTsynaptic membrane --> Na+ INFLUX
What happens during POSTsynaptic Depolarization? Enzymic Hydrolysis & PREsynaptic reabsorption of Neurotransmitter --> Repolarization --> AP at 1st POSTsynaptic Node
Why do we need Repolarization? otherwise AP's would only get through 1ce
