Synaptic Stimulation of Motoneurons as a Local Process


THREE lines of evidence justify the assumption that the initiation of an impulse by synaptic stimulation of a motoneuron is attributable to a process reaching threshold within a discrete zone of the soma, underneath a group of active synaptic knobs. (1) The soma of the motoneuron is electrically excitable and has a number of properties in common with… (More)
