The Nervous System
How do we know these things?
Nodes of Ranvier
Arrival of action potential
Release of NT into synaptic cleft
Bonding of NT with receptor sites
Change in receiving neuron
Release of NT back into cleft
Metabolism or reuptakeSeven steps of synaptic transmission
Post-synaptic membrane (dendrite, muscle, gland)
