  51. 58. <ul><li>5. Summary </li></ul><ul><ul><li>a) Excitation or Depolarization </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>due to increase in positive charges intracellular which brings membrane potential towards threshold which allows sodium gates to open and neuron fires </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>b) Inhibition or Hyperpolarization </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Due to an increase in negative charges intracellular or positive charges leaving (K + ) which brings the membrane potential away from threshold, making it HARDER to fire this neuron </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>c) How do we turn off the neurotransmitter? </li></ul></ul>
  52. 59. <ul><li>5d) As long as neurotransmitter is present in the synapse, it will keep reacting with post-synaptic receptors and keep the gates/channels open or closed and the reaction continues. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1. Norepinephrine and Epinephrine are transported AWAY from synapse or transported back into the pre-synaptic unit to be recycles </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2. Acetylcholine has specific enzyme in the synapse - Acetylcholinesterase - which cleaves the Ach into Acetyl plus Choline to be recycled </li></ul></ul>
