...  the body by the presynaptic nerve cell to produce a response to a certain stimuli. Some examples of neurotransmitter substances are serotonin, glycine, endorphins, gamma amino butyric acid (GABA), acetylcholine, norepinephrine, and dopamine. Serotonin This substance, which is found in the brainstem, the gastrointestinal tract and the platelets, is responsible for sleep induction and good  ...

Cholinergic Stimulation

...  stimulation is the response of the somatic motor neurons when a stimulus is present. It reacts by releasing acetylcholine from the synaptic vesicles found in the neurons. The chemical neurotransmitter is crucial for the propagation of nerve impulse. It crosses the synapse to stimulate the contraction of muscles such as the heart. Here are the things you must understand about it. The  ...

Synapse

...  and the immense quantity of mitochondria. The synapse is located at the farthest end of the presynaptic neuron. Synaptic vesicles have a neurotransmitter chemical, and its most common type is the acetylcholine. When these vesicles are stimulated into an action or an action potential, it will likely respond by releasing into the synaptic cleft the neurotransmitter chemical. The synaptic cleft  ...
