Storyboard Text

  • The Chemical Component is known as Neurotransmitters. Ones that enters the synapse are picked up by receoptor sites, In some cases, originating neuron reabsorbs the cheicals in a process called reuptake.
  • Let's Pretend this is a Chemical Lab
  • This hallway is called The Synaptic Cleft. This is the space between neurons at a nerve synapse across which a nerve impulse is transmitted by a neurotransmitter.
  • This leads to the two doors: One is the Presynaptic Neuron which fires the neurotransmitter as a result of an action potential entering its axon terminal. The other, Postsynaptic Neuron, which is an electrical impulse is transmitted across a synaptic cleft by the release of a chemical neurotransmitter from the axon terminal of a presynaptic neuron.
  • And lastly, we have our Terminal Buttons. these contain all the neurotransmitters that are necessary to pass on the signals. Thank you for joining our tour of the Neuron Factory!
