Excitatory

Some articles on excitatory:

Summation (neurophysiology)
... Excitatory neurotransmitters produce further depolarization of the postsynaptic cell, while an inhibitory neurotransmitter will mitigate the effects of an excitatory neurotransmitter ... A pathway can be facilitated by excitatory input removal of such input constitutes disfacilitation ...
Summation (neurophysiology) - Current Research
... because they are constantly incorporating a ranging frequency of both inhibitory and excitatory inputs ... inhibition called shunting, which is the decreased conductance of excitatory postsynaptic potentials ... Their work showed that spatial summation of excitatory and inhibitory postsynaptic potentials caused attenuation of the excitatory response during ...
Shunting
... Shunting is an event in the neuron which occurs when an excitatory postsynaptic potential and an inhibitory postsynaptic potential are occurring close to each other on a dendrite ... According to temporal summation one would expect the inhibitory and excitatory currents to be summed linearly to describe the resulting current entering the cell ... However, when inhibitory and excitatory currents are on the soma of the cell, the inhibitory current causes the cell resistance to change (making the cell "leakier"), thereby "shunting" instead of completely ...
Medium Spiny Neuron - Function
... Since these inputs are glutamatergic they exhibit an excitatory influence on the inhibitory medium spiny neurons ... Recall that excitatory postsynaptic potentials caused by glutamatergic inputs at the dendrites of the spiny neurons only cause an action potential when the depolarization wave is strong ... As a result, the excitatory input coming from cortical etc ...
Excitatory Amino Acid Agonist
... A excitatory amino acid agonist is a pharmacological agent which acts to increase the stimulation of receptors for excitatory amino acids (primarily glutamate) ...
