Annotation
for miniature end plate potentials or miniature excitatory postsynaptic potentials coordinate with MINIATURE POSTSYNAPTIC POTENTIALS
Scope Note
Depolarization of membrane potentials at the SYNAPTIC MEMBRANES of target neurons during neurotransmission. Excitatory postsynaptic potentials can singly or in summation reach the trigger threshold for ACTION POTENTIALS.
