Synaptic delay at mammalian neuromuscular synapses and central synapses is
about 0.22 ms. An appreciable part of this time is required to attach the
transmitter substance to the subsynaptic membrane and render the membrane
It acts at a variety of mammalian peripheral synapses, including the
neuromuscular junction and synapses in sympathetic and parasympathetic
ganglia. Acetylcholine is the transmitter in one type of central synapse and
perhaps others.342 ...
