Neurotransmitter released from presynaptic terminals activates both ligand-gated ion channels (ionotropic receptors) and a variety of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). These neurotransmitter receptors are expressed on both presynaptic and postsynaptic cells. Thus, each neurotransmitter acts on multiple receptor classes, generating a large repertoire of… CONTINUE READING
