Solution: Why does the width of the action potential affect synaptic release?

Problem

Why does the width of the action potential affect synaptic release?

Solution

The width of the action potential reflects the persistence of depolarization state of the neuron. This can affect the synaptic release because during depolarization, influx of calcium occurs.
