The rapidly emerging chemical and molecular complexities of synaptic transmission are beyond the scope of this entry. But the processes of neuroglial cells, especially astrocytes, are usually on site at synapses, in some cases almost everywhere and in others less so.

Presynaptic interaction is seen in many of the synapses currently described.
