Titel: Non-homogeneous Type II Counter Models for Neurotransmitter Releases (Examensarbete)

Sammanfattning: An attempt is made to model the release of neurotransmitter at a synapse following nerve stimulation. It is found that the recordings of neurotransmitter release can be modeled as a type II counter, to which particles arrive according to a non-homogeneous Poisson process. The distribution of the blocking time is not known, and three different distributions will be proposed. For each of these models a theoretical framework is constructed and a testing procedure introduced. This is done in order to test the fit of the experimental data to the theoretical expectations, according to each model.
