DAG for GO:0060079id: GO:0060079

name: excitatory postsynaptic potential
namespace: biological_process
def: "A process that leads to a temporary increase in postsynaptic potential due to the flow of positively charged ions into the postsynaptic cell. The flow of ions that causes an EPSP is an excitatory postsynaptic current (EPSC) and makes it easier for the neuron to fire an action potential." [GOC:dph, GOC:ef]
