Caption: Illustration of the transmission of a nervous impulse from an A neuron (dark green) to a B neuron (light green). Vesicles release glutamate (orange balls) that fix onto receptors (purple) that open sodium channels allowing Na+ ions to penetrate the B neuron's terminal dendrite buttons, creating an electrical current.
