Caption: Illustration of the transmission of a nervous impulse from one neuron to another. The electrical signal arrives at the synapse, triggering the opening of vesicles containing neurotransmitters released into the intersynaptic space. These neurotransmitters allow the ion channels to be opened at the surface of the postsynaptic neuron, which in turn allow the transmission of the nervous impulse from one neuron to another.
