1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Is the opening of a single receptor channel sufficient to depolarise a postsynaptic membrane?

3. The attempt at a solution

I would believe yes because it takes only a small excess of charges across a membrane for depolarisation to occur. However I am not very sure about that.
