Excitatory synapse pathway

At the excitatory synapse, the neurotransmitters released into the synaptic cleft cause an action potential in the postsynaptic neuron.

The excitatory synapse consists of a multitude of different components, ranging from receptors and channels to neurotransmitters and vesicle-associated proteins. Get an overview of all the machinery involved in the excitatory synapse with this handy poster.
