Abstract

Recent studies of central synaptic transmission reveal that neurotransmitter release is more unreliable than was previously thought. Nerve stimulation does not always elicit transmitter release, and when release events occur vesicle fusion with the presynaptic membrane is limited to at most a single quantum.
