The sensitivity of neurons and their ability to perceive synaptic spikes are not constant and change, depending on a number of factors; one important factor is the structure of interneuronal synapses. The efficiency of synapse operation, which is characterized by the amplitude of the excitatory postsynaptic potential, is determined by number and qualitative composition of synaptic vesicles, the size of the presynapses, the area of the active zone, the curvature of the plasma membrane, and the…

TLDR
One variant of the basic pattern, involving the restriction of granule discharge to areas of the terminal plasmalemma situated adjacent to the postsynaptic cells, enables a degree of targeted peptide discharge to be achieved.

TLDR
It is suggested that primitive, simpler nervous systems roughly correspond to a single heteron while evolved brains and cords include multiple units of heterochemical integration.

TLDR
A dual mode of operation that is diffuse as well as synaptic for the nigrostriatal DA system is suggested in such a densely DA‐innervated brain region.

Functional organization of the direct and indirect projection via the reticularis thalami nuclear complex from the motor cortex to the thalamic nucleus ventralis lateralis
TLDR
It was concluded that the motor cortical projection to the VL relayed by the RT is somatotopically organized and suggests that proximal adjustments may be automatically provided by the motor activity of the distal segments of the same limb.
