Annotation
for miniature end plate potentials or miniature excitatory postsynaptic potentials coordinate with EXCITATORY POSTSYNAPTIC POTENTIALS; for miniature inhibitory postsynaptic potentials coordinate with INHIBITORY POSTSYNAPTIC POTENTIALS
Scope Note
Postsynaptic potentials generated from a release of neurotransmitters from a presynaptic nerve terminal in the absence of an ACTION POTENTIAL. They may be m.e.p.p.s (miniature EXCITATORY POSTSYNAPTIC POTENTIALS) or m.i.p.p.s (miniature INHIBITORY POSTSYNAPTIC POTENTIALS).
