In addition to neurotransmitter substances acting at close range in chemical synaptic neurotransmission, there exist chemical interactions between neurones without any close synaptic contact: interneuronal modulation of transmission which operates over some distance (17–19). This would be an intermediary form between classical neurotransmission and the broadcasting of neuroendocrine secretion. Transmission of information can, however, also be modulated at synaptic junctions pre- and postsynaptically, as well as at axon terminals and target cells (soma, dendrites, axon hillock) which are not in synaptic contact with the release site where the modulator/transmitter comes from.
