- 2. Nicotine
- 3. Muscarine

a substance, other than a neurotransmitter, released by a neuron and transmitting information to other neurons, altering their activities. A substance that alters nerve impulse transmission
What NT does a postganglionic sympathetic nerve release?

SAN or Sinoatrial Node
Refers to a continuous action potential or a continuous firing/discharging at the synapse.
Tonic or Tonically active neuron
Drup given to someone who has bradycardic?
A condition that's results in temporary loss of consciousness caused by an insufficient supply of oxygen to the brain often times due to arrhythmia.
