Events Leading to Neurotransmitter Release

STUDY
PLAY
STEP 1
AP passes along an axon and over surface of synaptic knob
STEP 2
synaptic knob membrane becomes permeable to Calcium ions and diffuse inward
STEP 3
in presence of calcium ions, synaptic vesciles fuse to synaptic knob membrane
STEP 4
synaptic vesicles release neurotransmitter by exocytosis into synaptic cleft
STEP 5
synaptic vesicles become part of membrane
STEP 6
the added membrance provides material for endocytotic vesciles
