Term Information [More information on inhibitory postsynaptic potential]

Accession
GO:0060080
Name
inhibitory postsynaptic potential
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
regulation of inhibitory post-synaptic membrane potential, IPSP
Definition
A process that causes a temporary decrease in postsynaptic membrane potential due to the flow of negatively charged ions into the postsynaptic cell. The flow of ions that causes an IPSP is an inhibitory postsynaptic current (IPSC) and makes it more difficult for the neuron to fire an action potential. Source: GOC:dph, GOC:ef
