Neurotransmitter is a chemical messenger comprising of endogenous chemicals that support neurotransmission. In other words, signals are transferred from one neuron to another through a chemical synapse. Neurotransmitter undergoes several mechanisms to influence the neuron’s changes and transfers. Whenever the Trans membrane ion is influenced to flow in order to increase the possibility for a target neuron to attach, it is regarded as excitatory neurotransmission. In general, type 1 synapses are called as excitatory neurotransmission. In a second, every neuron receives several thousands of excitatory signals.
It is easier to locate an excitatory neurotransmitter as it is often present either on the spines or shafts of dendrites. They are known to have round synaptic vesicles. However, the active zone of Type 1 is extremely larger than the type 2 which has inhibitory ability. There are different sets of neurotransmitters known to increase or decrease. As the doctor has diagnosed a friend’s grandfather with a disease influenced by excitatory neurotransmitter, it is clear that it is only acetylcholine and not dopamine by nature. The case does not have even a tiny tinge of inhibition in it. Acetylcholine is only mostly excitatory and this neurotransmitter is found to be the one to have been affecting his body. It could be in terms of sleep patterns or muscular movements or brain activities.
