What Is The Mechanism Of Impulse Delivery (synapses Transmission)?
Good afternoon, I want to ask, what is the mechanism of impulse delivery (synaptic transmission)?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. To function properly as a human being, one of the very important systems in our body is the nervous system. Through this system, it is regulated how our reflex movements when exposed to sharp objects, hot objects, how we respond to pain, feel the touch, also how our tongue can taste sweet, salty, and so forth.
In the process, our body is inseparable from the name of stimulus or impulse, which is an impulse that starts innervation of the body. When certain impulses arise, such as heat, there is a difference in the action potential in the smallest unit of our nervous system, called axons and dendrites, and then triggers the release of chemicals called neurotransmitters. There are various kinds of neurotransmitters in the body, such as dopamine, GABA, glutamate, serotonin, histamine and epinephrine, which have their respective recipients. Impulses that trigger differences in the action potential and result in the release of certain neurotransmitters, will later activate a special part of the related organ that causes the release of a series of reactions, such as we pull our hands from a heat source. All of these processes occur for a fraction of a second and we are even partially unaware.
Our explanation above is only a small part and only a rough description of a very complex process. There are still many complicated and specific processes depending on how deep you need them. And if it continues, it is prone to misunderstanding because of limited interactions and translation media. Our advice, if you need deeper information than this, you should ask your seniors, teachers or lecturers directly if you are still in school, or by watching various learning videos that are spread on the internet, for example by typing the keyword "neuron action potential" , "nerve impulse mechanism", or "nerve impulse molecular mechanism". With the help of moving pictures and guided explanations per illustration, your understanding will be deeper than just reading the text. So, hopefully answering your question.
