I work in the Biomedical Engineering Program at Arizona State University. I learned about OpenWetWare from Referred by a professor. I've joined because as a biomedical engineering major, my professor has suggested that we sign up for OpenWetWare to better elaborate on certain topics..

Excitatory and Inhibitory Post-synaptic Potential
Within neural science, there are excitatory post-synaptic potential and inhibitory post-synaptic potential where both determine whether action potentials occur or not. The excitatory post-synaptic potential determines if a post-synaptic neuron is more likely to generate an action potenial, while an inhibitory post-synaptic potential fails to generate any action potentials. Neurotransmitters move along the synapse to be detected by and with receptors in the post-synaptic neuron. When these bonds occur, it influences either an inhibitory or excitatory post-synaptic action potenial.
