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 .
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 .
There, electrical impulses propel vesicles into the cell wall to spray the neurotransmitter into the synapse .
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.
In general, the signal travels across the synapse from the axon of one cell to the dendrite of the next.
He found that learning occurs at the synapse (the junction between two neurons) by several means.
An electrical signal travels down one nerve cell, causing it to release the neurotransmitter into a small gap between cells called the synapse .
Much of this activity goes on at the synapse , or the regions where two neurons come into contact.
In depressed people, too much serotonin is reabsorbed in the receiving neuron after crossing the synapse , the gap between neurons.
