Neurons communicate with each other by means of electrical or biochemical signals. Neuronal networks are groups of coupled neurons. One neuron receives information from one or more neurons and can transmit the processed information via its synapses towards other neurons. Usually such a neuronal network uses a specific neurotransmitter to transmit the information. Depending on the neurotransmitter, the postsynaptic cell can receive an inhibitory or excitatory signal. These signals act
An example of a neuronal network is shown in the next graphic: dopamine network.
The postsynaptic neuron receives electrical stimuli from the presynaptic neuron.
