    • This process allows the vesicles to dock to that part of the membrane where the neurotransmitters are due to be released into the synapse (the active zone).
    • This results in a greater quantity of a particular neurotransmitter remaining in the synapse.
    • He found that learning occurs at the synapse (the junction between two neurons) by several means.
    • At the end of the trunk is a synapse or connection with other items, usually roots of other neurons.
    • In depressed people, too much serotonin is reabsorbed in the receiving neuron after crossing the synapse, the gap between neurons.
    • A neurotransmitter such as acetylcholine is responsible for allowing nerve impulses to jump across a gap between two nerve cells in the brain called synapse.
    • The idea is the turn up the volume of neuronal signals that use acetylcholine as a transmitter molecule, by inhibiting the enzyme that would break it down and sweep it out of the synapse.
    • In general, the signal travels across the synapse from the axon of one cell to the dendrite of the next.
    • Once the genes were turned on, certain proteins would be released, which reshaped the end of the nerve cell or synapse and changed how it functioned for a lengthy period of time.
    • It codes for the protein in neurons that recycles secreted serotonin from the synapse.
    • Various glutamate receptors have been shown to redistribute away from the synapse within as little as 5 minutes under certain stimuli.
    • Yet a second problem was how this protein, once it was manufactured in the cell body of the neuron, could then find the one synapse among thousands that had called for it.
    • There, electrical impulses propel vesicles into the cell wall to spray the neurotransmitter into the synapse.
    • It's at a synapse that one nerve cell releases chemicals to signal an adjoining nerve cell.
    • An electrical signal travels down one nerve cell, causing it to release the neurotransmitter into a small gap between cells called the synapse.
    • The synapse is the probable arena where general anesthetics depress neuronal function.
    • In the case of motor neurons, the axon terminal finds the site of the original synapse on the muscle cell by recognizing the basal lamina that fills the synaptic cleft.
    • Much of this activity goes on at the synapse, or the regions where two neurons come into contact.
    • When the spike reaches the synaptic terminals it causes neurotransmitters to be released into the synapse where they then flow to post-synaptic neurons.
    • But a single synapse firing briefly is generally not enough to make the neuron fire an impulse, technically termed an action potential, of its own.
