At excitatory synapses, decreases in cleft [Ca] arising from activity-dependent transmembrane Ca flux reduce the probability of subsequent transmitter release. Intense neural activity, induced by physiological and pathological stimuli, disturb the external microenvironment reducing extracellular [Ca] ([Ca](o)) and thus may impair neurotransmission. Increases in [Ca](o) activate the extracellular calcium sensing receptor (CaSR) which in turn inhibits nonselective cation channels at the majority… CONTINUE READING
