Caption: Nerve synapse. Computer artwork of a brain, showing neurons (nerve cells) and the junction, or synapse, between two nerve cells (right) in the profile outline of a brain. The front of the brain is at right. As an electrical signal reaches the presynaptic end of a neuron it triggers the release of neurotransmitters (red) across the gap, or synaptic cleft, between the two cells. The neurotransmitters bind to receptors in the post synaptic membrane, triggering an electrical pulse.
