Chemical synapses: post-synaptic mechanisms. Postsynaptic Membranes and ion channels . Ligand gated ion channels – a review. Resting K + channels : responsible for generating the resting potential across the membrane
End plate potentials (EPPs) evoked by stimulation of a motor neuron are
normally above threshold and therefore produce an action potential
in the postsynaptic muscle cell.
Summation of multiple epsps to bring the membrane potential to threshold
for an action potential.
