Animation of a nerve synapse, a junction between two nerve cells. Synapses transmit electrical signals (blue) from one nerve cell to the next. The transmitting neuron releases chemicals (neurotransmitter molecules) into the synaptic cleft (gap), which bind to receptors on the second neuron, triggering the electrical impulse.
