what is a synapse a synapse is a structure that enables a neuron to pass electrical and chemical signals to another neuron
A brief period of complete insensitivity to stimuli is called absolute refractory phase
A synapse at which a presynaptic axon terminal synapses onto the axon terminal of another neuron is called axo-axonic synapse
A synapse at which a presynaptic axon terminal synapses onto a dendrite of the postsynaptic neuron, either via a dendritic spine or directly onto the dendrite itself is called axo-dendritic synapse
A synapse at which a presynaptic axon terminal synapses onto the cell body (soma) of the postsynaptic neuron is called axo-somatic synapse
The chemical breakdown of a neurotransmitter into inactive metabolites is called degradation
what region of a synapse that releases neurotransmitters presynaptic
