Chemical Transmission:

  • The synapse includes the synaptic cleft as well as the presynaptic terminal and post synaptic receptor site. 
  • Neurons transmit electrically.
  • Signals between neurons are transmitetd chemically by synaptic transmission
  • Electric impulse reaches end of neuron it triggers the reelase of neurotransmitter from tiny sacs called synaptic vesicles.


  • Are chemicals that diffuse across the synapse to the next neuron in the…
