where do the synapses with an interneuron occur?
Outside the CNS
What is the main difference btw parasympathetic and sympathetic synapses?

What is the name of the receptor for Ach?

What is the term used if a postsynaptic neuron receives info from several presynaptic neurons?
What type of neurotransmitters are used during IPSP?
What type of summation is it when many presynaptic neurons converge on a polysynaptic nerve cell?
What is a temporal summation?.

What is the effect of the basal ganglia on the thalamus?
