Complete synapse model: from wave-like calcium uncaging to postsynaptic channel opening. Simulation results of the synaptic model devised by building upon the independently developed models of the pre- and post- synaptic processes, considered in isolation. From left to right, it can be observed the calcium wave amongst other values, the logarithmic scale of them, which highlights the dynamics of the process: two vesicles are released within 2 ms and the corresponding two T waves are visible. The right part of the figure focuses on a selection of the variables and the time course of the neurotransmitters T is distinguishable. It can be observed that these waves lead to the opening of some receptor channels in a very short time and lasting few ms longer. It must be noted that the T waves are induced stochastically by the calcium waves.
