Caption: Illustration of the transmission of a nervous impulse from a neuron (purple) to a 2nd neuron (red). The electrical impulse is transformed into a chemical one, vesicles release glutamate (blue) that fix onto receptors (yellow) that open sodium channels allowing Na+ ions to penetrate the terminal dendrite buttons, creating an electrical current.
