DAG for GO:2000463id: GO:2000463

name: positive regulation of excitatory postsynaptic potential
namespace: biological_process
def: "Any process that enhances the establishment or increases the extent of the excitatory postsynaptic potential (EPSP) which is 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:bf, GOC:BHF]
synonym: "positive regulation of EPSP" RELATED [GOC:bf, GOC:obol]
