How does communication take place between neurons?
The electrical impulse moves across the synapse from axon to dendrite.
The electrical impulse in the axon causes depolarization of the dendrite in the receiving cell.
The electrical impulse in the axon triggers the release of chemicals that stimulate the dendrite in the receiving cell.
Transmission of the neural impulse is facilitated between cells by the myelin sheath.
Charged sodium and potassium ions are exchanged between the neurons.
