chemical synaptic transmission, postsynaptic +   
excitatory chemical synaptic transmission  
induction of synaptic vesicle exocytosis by positive regulation of presynaptic cytosolic calcium ion concentration  
inhibitory chemical synaptic transmission 
modulation of chemical synaptic transmission +   
Any process that modulates the frequency or amplitude of synaptic transmission, the process of communication from a neuron to a target (neuron, muscle, or secretory cell) across a synapse. Amplitude, in this case, refers to the change in postsynaptic membrane potential due to a single instance of synaptic transmission.
