Neurotransmitters In The Brain

Satisfactory Essays
Seizures are the result of hyperexcitation and synchronization of firing neurons. Neurons are made up of the cell body, the axon, and dendrites. The cell body contains the nucleus and other cellular organelles. The axon conducts information, and the dendrites and the cell body receive the information from the other neurons. The communication between the neurons I polarized and occurs at sites of contact point called synapses. The neurons release chemical substances called neurotransmitters (chemical messengers of the brain). There are some excitatory and some inhibitory neurotransmitters in the brain. The main excitatory neurotransmitter is glutamate, and the main inhibitory neurotransmitter is gamma-aminobutyric acid. A tight balanced is maintained
