There are series of events that occurs in order to transmit signal from the one synapse to another. It starts when an electrical signal from the action potential reaches the axon terminal in pre-synaptic cell. This signal is translated into a chemical signal through neurotransmitter.
Describe the sequence of events at a typical fast chemical sysnapse.
