A synapse is the small gap between two neurons. It is the site of transmission of electric nerve impulses. An electrical impulse triggers the synaptic vesicles of the pre-synaptic neuron to release a chemical message called neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters diffuse across the gap between the pre and post-synaptic neurons and bind to specialized receptor sites on the post-synaptic neuron.
