Chapter 26

Synaptic Transmission

Pascal Wallisch

This chapter will use a number of methods to characterize the processes surrounding synaptic transmission, in particular the release and diffusion of neurotransmitters. This chapter will also introduce handles for graphic objects to update images dynamically. By the end of this chapter, you should have an understanding of different random variables, discrete distributions, finite difference approximations to partial differential equations, and the use of graphic handles for rudimentary animation.
