  • Publisher Summary This chapter reviews the experiments on the relation between [Ca 2+ ] in and transmitter release at synapses, with an emphasis on the neuromuscular junction. Then, the quantitive models of calcium action, starting with the simplest and adding variables stepwise are discussed, until a model with the minimum complexity consistent with the data is reached. The models are compared to the data for transmitter release at synapses. In the end, the implications of the model for the… CONTINUE READING
