Neurotransmission

 

Tell a ‘story’ by describing how a neuronal impulse creates a cascade of events to occur within the neuron and between neurons. Imagine that you are explaining how neuronal activation occurs, and what the step-by-step processes are, as you would, to a fellow nurse practitioner that has not specialized in psychiatric nursing but is familiar with medical/biology terminology.

Concepts/words that must be incorporated and explained throughout your ‘story’ includes:

  • Neurotransmitter
  • Synaptic Cleft
  • Receiving Neuron
  • Signal Transduction Cascade
  • Voltage-gated and Ligand-ion channels
  • G-protein-linked Receptor
  • Agonist, Partial Agonist, Antagonist, and Inverse Agonist and their Role in Signal Transduction

300 -500 words and include at least four scholarly references in your work.
