Neurotransmission and Neuroinflammation

Neurotransmission is the process of information transfer between neurons and their targets. It regulates both excitatory and inhibitory functions in the central nervous system. Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that transmit signals from neurons to target cells across the synapse. The process of neurotransmission includes various stages like synthesis, storage, release, binding and inactivation. Various diseases associated with neurotransmitters include Epilepsy, Migraines, ADD, etc., Neuroinflammation is the inflammation of the nervous tissue. Neuroinflammation may be initiated in response to infection, brain injury, toxic metabolites, or autoimmunity. The two types include Acute and Chronic neuroinflammation. As neuroinflammation is associated with many neurodegenerative disorders, future research works include identifying the potential drug targets for reducing neuroinflammation.
