    Acetylcholine (Ach) allows transmittance of impulses across a synapse.

    An inhibition of this can cause an impulse to not be passes which doesn't sound that bad.. but if its a impulse to tell the heart to slow down because the pressure is to high..the heart will not do this so you will go pop..like a grape. Or it could stop your heart to stop!
