    The inhibtatory synapse releases positive sodium ions from the membrane, leading to hyperpolarisation. This does not generate an action potentional. The exitatory synapse releases negative chloride ions to the membrane, activating the action potential. This leads to depolarisation.

    Is this for a-level?

    Inhibitory --> Reduces the chance of the post-synaptic neuron firing.
    Excitatory - increases the chance.

    This is determined by the 'sum' of neurotransmitters in the vesicles in a process called summation.
