Peptidergic transmitters in synaptic boutons of sympathetic ganglia

In sympathetic ganglia of the bullfrog, a slow synaptic potential lasting for minutes—the late slow excitatory postsynaptic potential (e.p.s.p.)—was discovered1. This slow response, unlike other previously known synaptic potentials in the autonomie nervous system, is not mediated by acetylcholine or monoamines. Similar non-cholinergic, non-adrenergic slow… CONTINUE READING
