25 Weeks Pregnant Genital Warts

III. Physiology 1. The synapse

1. Neurotransmitters into the synapse.

* In a synapse, two neurons are in contact, the presynaptic one (before the synapse) and one postsynaptic (post-synapse). * In the axon of the first are, among others, vesicles containing neurotransmitters *. * When a nerve impulse reaches the presynaptic axon opens vesicles in the synapse, which releases neurotransmitters.

neurotransmitter molecules then follow three paths:

-or they bind to postsynaptic receptors and allow the passage of nerve impulses,

-either they are recaptured by the presynaptic neuron * that store again in vesicles,

-or they are degraded in the synapse by specific enzymes *.
