Presynaptic
Chemical synapses are specialized junctions through which neurons signal to each other and to non-neuronal cells such as those in muscles or glands. Chemical synapses allow neurons to form circuits wi...

Suicide-Risk Behaviour Patterns Identified - Study
Depressed people who display "risky behaviour", agitation and impulsivity are at least 50% more likely to attempt suicide, a study finds. Research by the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (E...
Synaptogenesis
Synaptogenesis is the formation of synapses between neurons in the nervous system. Although it occurs throughout a healthy person's lifespan, an explosion of synapse formation occurs during early brai...
Synaptic plasticity
In neuroscience, synaptic plasticity is the ability of synapses to strengthen or weaken over time, in response to increases or decreases in their activity. Plastic change also results from the alterat...
Summation (neurophysiology)
Summation, also known as frequency summation is the method of signal transduction between neurons, which determines whether or not an action potential will be triggered by the combined effects of post...

Neuropharmacology
Neuropharmacology is the study of how drugs affect cellular function in the nervous system, and the neural mechanisms through which they influence behavior. There are two main branches of neuropharmac...

Long-term potentiation
In neuroscience, long-term potentiation (LTP) is a persistent strengthening of synapses based on recent patterns of activity. These are patterns of synaptic activity that produce a long-lasting increa...

Vesicle fusion
Vesicle fusion is the merging of a vesicle with other vesicles or a part of a cell membrane. In the latter case, it is the end stage of secretion from secretory vesicles, where their contents are expe...
