Pocket Atlas of Cytology, Histology and Microscopic Anatomy

This undying pocket atlas is the appropriate visible significant other to histology and cytology textbooks. First released in 1950 and translated into 8 languages, Kuehnel's Pocket Atlas of Cytology, Histology and Microscopic Anatomy is a confirmed vintage. The absolutely revised and up-to-date fourth variation includes 745 full-color illustrations - virtually 2 hundred greater than have been integrated within the 3rd version.

9 TEMPORAL AND SPATIAL SUMMATION • Neurons receive multiple excitatory and inhibitory inputs. Temporal summation occurs when a series of subthreshold impulses in one excitatory fiber produces an action potential in the postsynaptic cell (panel C). Spatial summation occurs when subthreshold impulses from two or more different fibers trigger an action poten- 60 tial (panel D). Both temporal and spatial summation can be modulated by simultaneous inhibitory input (panel E). Inhibitory and excitatory neurons use a wide variety of neurotransmitters, some of which are summarized here.
