Caption

Brain synapse. Anatomical computer artwork of a human brain with an enlargement showing the structure of a synapse (lower right) within one of the striate bodies that make up the striatum. A synapse is the junction between two nerve cells (neurons). As the electrical signal reaches the presynaptic end of a neuron it triggers the release of neurotransmitters (dots, lower centre). These chemicals travel across the gap (synaptic cleft) between the two cells and initiate a nerve impulse in the postsynaptic neuron.
