Modified, with permission, from Ganong WF: Review of Medical Physiology, 18tb ed. Appleton & Lange, 1997. (hyperpolarizations) tend to sum with each other. As a neuron integrates the incoming synaptic information, it weighs the excitatory and inhibitory signals. Depending on whether or not threshold is reached at the impulse initiation zone (usually the axon initial segment), an action potential is either generated or not. If an action potential is initiated, it propagates along the axon to impinge, via its synapses, on still other neurons.

This occurs, for example, in subdural hematoma, when an expanding blood clot, contained by the skull vault, compresses the adjacent brain, initially causing reversible dysfunction, before triggering the death of neural tissue. Early recognition and surgical drainage of the clot can lead to full recovery. Finally, compromise of ventricular pathways or of the vasculature can lead to neurologic signs and symptoms. For example, a small cerebellar astrocytoma, critically located above the fourth ventricle, may compress the ventricle and obstruct the outflow of cerebrospinal fluid.
