Synaptic Influencer

Decent Essays
It is commonly accepted that synapses exist between neurons and reuptake occurs with synaptic neurotransmitters. According to Doctor Jason Pugh’s research, there is much more involved. In conjunction with Trinity’s Biology Department, he spoke about his specific field of study in presynaptic receptors and neurotransmitters. The lecture itself was titled “Cooperative activity of presynaptic GABA receptors modulates neurotransmitter release and information transfer in neuronal circuits”. This lecture provided much insight to the inner workings of neurotransmitters and the processes concerning them.
This lecture started off with the description of two major synaptic influencers: the excitatory glutamate and the inhibitory GABA. Along with these
