Italian term or phrase: bloccano la trasmissione nervosa iperstimolando pre-post sinapticamente le termi
symptoms if you come into contact with an insecticide

English translation:block nerve transmission by pre- and postsynaptically hyperstimulating the neurons
Explanation:
I am not sure of what you mean by "le termi". Was that the complete sentence?

explanation: "Without getting into complicated anatomy and physiology, one nerve cell (neuron) connects to an adjacent neuron by a long extension called an axon. The axon branches into axonal endings, each of which attaches to the adjacent neuron at a synaptic knob filled with acetylcholine. The minute gap or synaptic cleft within this knob is only about 0.02 micrometers. As a nerve impulse (wave of depolarization or action potential) reaches this gap, acetylcholine diffuses across the synaptic cleft and activates the adjacent neuron. Acetylcholine in the synaptic cleft is deactivated or broken down by the enzyme acetylcholinesterase, thus shutting off the action potential. Organophosphate insecticides, such as malathion and parathion, bind to active sites on this enzyme, thus preventing the normal shut down of nerve impulses and destroying the nervous control of insects. Nerve gasses developed during World War II have a similar effect on the nervous system. Gulf War soldiers carried an atropine syrette to counter the possible effects of nerve gas. http://waynesword.palomar.edu/chemid2.htm

"Mode of action--The mode of action for DDT has never been clearly established, but in some complex manner it destroys the delicate balance of sodium and potassium ions within the axons of the neuron in a way that prevents normal transmission of nerve impuses, both in insects and mammals. It apparently acts on the sodium channel to cause "leakage" of sodium ions. Eventually the neurons fire impulses spontaneously, causing the muscles to twitch-- "DDT jitters"-- followed by convulsions and death. DDT has a negative temperature correlation--the lower the surrounding temperature the more toxic it becomes to insects.."
