Term Name: modulation of inhibitory postsynaptic potential Search Ontology:
Synonyms:
  • regulation of inhibitory postsynaptic potential
Definition: Any process that modulates the frequency, rate or extent of inhibitory postsynaptic potential (IPSP). IPSP is a temporary decrease in postsynaptic membrane potential due to the flow of negatively charged ions into the postsynaptic cell. The flow of ions that causes an IPSP is an inhibitory postsynaptic current (IPSC) and makes it more difficult for the neuron to fire an action potential.
