Neurotransmitter Receptor Binding And Downstream Transmission In The Postsynaptic Cell (R-HSA-112314) [Homo sapiens]


The neurotransmitter in the synaptic cleft released by the pre-synaptic neuron binds specific receptors located on the post-synaptic terminal. These receptors are either ion channels or G protein coupled receptors that function to transmit the signals from the post-synaptic membrane to the cell body.
