The output travels down another process extending from the cell body – the axon. In contrast to dendrites, there is only one axon per neuron (although the axon may divide into numerous branches). The axon transmits the output of the neuron (the action potential) to the terminal boutons (presynaptic swellings containing vesicles of neurotransmitter). 2. Neurons are surrounded by a lipid bilayer (cell membrane) within which proteins are embedded. g. Naþ– Kþ exchange pumps). Ion channels within the axolemma (axonal surface membrane) enable the axon to conduct action potentials.

G. ATP). Peptides are commonly referred to as neuromodulators because they are thought to modulate the release and postsynaptic effects of other neurotransmitters. Regulation of transmitter synthesis Transmitter synthesis is regulated in the short term by the intracellular calcium level at the terminal bouton. If the neuron fires many action potentials, Ca2þ builds Synaptic transmission short-term regulation of dopamine synthesis activation of Ca2+ / calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II depolarization resulting in (Ca2+) inside terminal 3 phosphorylation of tyrosine hydroxylase increased affinity for co-factor tetrahydrobiopterin increased dopa synthesis this leads to increased dopamine synthesis because the only limiting step is tyrosine hydroxylase long-term regulation of dopamine synthesis cAMP activity of protein kinase A ATP cyclic AMP response element binding protein (CREB) ADP phosphorylated CREB binds to DNA upstream from TH gene and increases transcription Fig.

Visual information is initially processed in isolation in the central nervous system in parallel pathways. Consequently, when certain neuronal groups are active the brain appreciates that information is coming in from a restricted part of 3D space and this increases our perceptual abilities. At higher levels, this information is integrated so that we consciously perceive a picture rather than a collection of lines and colours in different areas of the visual field. Noise is background neuronal activity that is unconnected with information carried in the circuit.
