Sample text

For example, glucose is transported into the cell in order to provide energy for neurotransmission. Neurotransmitters are also transported into neurons as a recapture mechanism following their release and use during neurotransmission. This is done in order for neurotransmitter to be repackaged and reused in a subsequent neurotransmission. In order to accomplish selective shuttling of certain molecules across an otherwise impermeable membrane, other molecules known as transport carriers work to bind that molecule needing a trip inside the cell (Figs.

However, in the presence of sodium the carrier does bind to neurotransmitter molecules (see Figure 2 — 21 with sodium in the tires, which are now pumped up, and the carrier now binding neurotransmitter as well). This reuptake pump can also be inhibited so that neurotransmitter molecules can no longer bind to the reuptake carrier (Figure 2 — 22 shows sodium gone, neurotransmitter gone, and an inhibitor in place causing the tires to go flat again). Many antidepressants act by targeting one or another of the reuptake pumps for monoamine neurotransmitters, especially the serotonin transporter, the norepineph-rine transporter, and the dopamine transporter.

Such potential changes in synaptogenesis may provide the substrate for learning, emotional maturity, and the development of cognitive and motor skills throughout a lifetime. However, it is not clear how the brain dispenses its neurotrophic factors endogenously during normal adult physiological functioning. Presumably, demand to use neurons is met by keeping them fit and ready to function, a task accomplished by salting the brain broth with neurotrophic factors that keep the neurons healthy. Perhaps thinking and learning provoke the release of neurotrophic factors.
