Neurotransmitters which don't produce action potentials

Post by Abagail4279 » Mon Jan 29, 2018 10:08 pm

When a neurotransmitter binds to a postsynaptic receptor, but either isn't a strong enough EPSP or is canceled out by an IPSP it won't create an action potential. What is the point of these neurotransmitters if they do not accomplish the action potential?

Thanks!
