Caption: An animation depicting a chemical synapse between a neuron and surrounding dendrites. A chemical synapse occurs when electrical activity in a presynaptic neuron is converted into the release of chemicals known as neurotransmitters. The neurotransmitters are released and bind to receptors on the postsynaptic cells to initiate an electrical response.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
