GO Term excitatory postsynaptic potential

Name excitatory postsynaptic potential
Exact Synonym regulation of excitatory post-synaptic membrane potential
Related Synonym regulation of EPSP
Definition A process that leads to a temporary increase in postsynaptic potential due to the flow of positively charged ions into the postsynaptic cell. The flow of ions that causes an EPSP is an excitatory postsynaptic current (EPSC) and makes it easier for the neuron to fire an action potential.
Ontology Biological Process
