Which one of the following statements about synaptic

Which one of the following statements about synaptic

Which one of the following statements about synaptic function is incorrect? 1. If an excitatory synapse generated a 2 mV EPSP in a neuron's dendrite and an inhibitory synapse generated a 2 mV IPSP in a neuron's cell body, the inhibitory synapse would have a stronger influence on action potential generation in the postsynaptic cell. 2. If one applied a toxin to the presynaptic membrane that blocked the opening of voltage-gated K^+ channels, transmitter release would decrease. 3. At an excitatory synapse, binding of the neurotransmitter to its postsynaptic receptor generates net inward current across the postsynaptic membrane. 4. If one applied a toxin to the presynaptic membrane that blocked the opening of voltage-gated Ca^2+ channels, the amplitude of the postsynaptic potential would increase.
