    Advances in bioengineering and nanotechnology have allowed the emergence of nanometer-sized devices, e.g., synthetic nanomachines, nanoantennas and nanoinjectors, able of detecting and actuating their environment. However, despite necessary, it is a big challenge to master the communication among them. The conventional electromagnetic communication is not a direct choice for nanonetworks in some specific medium and due to their scale. Hence, researchers have explored molecular communication. Particularly, this paper investigates the potential of the Inositol Triphosphate (IP3) molecule for data communication between nanodevices. We evaluate the space-time concentration of the IP3 molecule and how intracellular signaling inflluences over it in neuron cells (astrocytes). Compared to the calcium molecule performance, results from gain and channel communication are promising and assist in a further understanding of how to manage extracellular data transmission.
