Answer

Synapse and Nerve Impulse Transmission

The synapse is the junction between two neurons. At this junction, there is no direct continuity between the neurons. Instead, a gap called the synaptic cleft separates them.

To transfer the nerve impulse across the synapse, neurotransmitters are utilized. Two common neurotransmitters are Acetyl Choline and Adrenaline. These chemicals are essential for the transmission of impulses from one neuron to the next across the synaptic cleft.
