Since at any moment a neuron is likely to have thousands of neurons releasing neurotransmitters at its surface, how is neuronal activity (to fire or not to fire) determined?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 7:03 pm ad1c9bdddf
A post synaptic neuron must sum or integrate all of the incoming signals. This process of integration is called "summation." The greater the depolarizing summation, the greater the chance that a nerve impulse will be initiated.
There are two types of summation: spatial summation and temporal summation.
Spatial summation results from the buildup of ...
