Term Information [More information on synaptic transmission]

Accession
GO:0007268
Name
synaptic transmission
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
neurotransmission, signal transmission across a synapse, synaptic transmission
Definition
The vesicular release of classical neurotransmitter molecules from a neuron, across a chemical synapse, the subsequent activation of neurotransmitter receptors of a target cell (neuron, muscle, or secretory cell) and the effects of this activation on the postsynaptic membrane potential and ionic composition of the postsynaptic cytosol. This process encompasses both spontaneous and evoked release of neurotransmitter and all parts of synaptic vesicle exocytosis. Evoked transmission starts with the arrival of an action potential at the presynapse. Source: MeSH:D009435, GOC:jl
