Communication of information between neurons is accomplished by movement of chemicals across a small gap called the synapse. Chemicals, called neurotransmitters are released from one neuron (the presynaptic nerve terminal), then cross the synapse and are accepted by the next neuron at a specialized site (the postsynaptic receptor). The action that follows activation of a receptor site may be either depolarization (an excitatory postsynaptic potential) or hyperpolarization (an inhibitory postsynaptic potential).
