When the action potential reaches the axon terminals, it causes what action to occur?
It releases another action potential to affect a neuron at the synapse.
It allows positively charged potassium ions to excite the next neuron.
It allows positively charged sodium ions to inhibit the next neuron.
It releases negatively charged ions that inhibit cell activity across the synapse.
It releases neurotransmitters that can either excite or inhibit the next neuron across the synapse.
