Definitions for "Temporal summation"
In the production or inhibition of action potentials in a postsynaptic neuron, the interaction of depolarizations or hyperpolarizations produced by rapidly repeated stimulation of a single point.
Summation of successive postsynaptic responses in a postsynaptic cell from two or more action potentials arriving within a brief period in the same synaptic terminal.
is performed in the postsynaptic cell and refers to the integration of synaptic inputs over time
The process whereby a stimulus that is below threshold will elicit a reflex if the stimulus occurs repeatedly.
