Octopaminergic modulation of synaptic transmission between an identified sensory afferent and flight motoneuron in the locust

The Journal of Comparative Neurology

May 23, 2003

B LeitchRobert M Pitman

Abstract

The role of the biogenic amine octopamine in modulating cholinergic synaptic transmission between the locust forewing stretch receptor neuron (fSR) and the first basalar motoneuron (BA1) was investigated. The amines 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT, serotonin) and dopamine were also studied. B...read more

Neuromodulation

Neuromodulation refers to a physiological process in which a neuron uses chemical(s) to regulate a variety of neuronal populations. Discover the latest research on neuromodulation here.

Synaptic Junctions

Synaptic or neuronal junctions are the site of transmission of electrical nerve impulses between neurons or between neurons and effector cells. Discover the latest research on synaptic junctions here.

Neuronal Cell Types

There are diverse ranges of neurons, which are defined by their structural, functional, connectional and molecular properties. For example, some type of neurons includes sensory, sympathetic, and motor neurons. Discover the latest research on neuronal cell types here.

Serotonin

Serotonin is a multifaceted neurotransmitter with various functions, including reward and learning. Discover the latest research, including the latest computational studies, of serotonin here.

Formation of Synapses and Circuits

Synapses are crucial for the transmission of information within neural circuits. These specialized intercellular junctions are the basis for the formation of complex networks. Formation of these synapses involve numerous steps that are essential for transmission of information. Here is the latest research on formation of synapses and circuits.

Dopamine & Behavior

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter and a hormone commonly associated with the brain's pleasure and reward system. Here is the latest research on its role in affecting and guiding human behaviour.

Neuronal Identity

Neuronal identity is important for defining the end result of stem cell differentiation through neuronal developmentor for regenerative medicine. This could involved transcription factors used to drive induce pluripotent stem cells towards the neuronal lineage. Discover the latest research on Neuronal Identity here.
