In the nervous system, synapses are essential for neuron function, allowing neurons to transmit electrical or chemical signals to another neuron or the target effector cells. Neurons are cells that are specifically used to transmit signals to a single target cell, and synapses are the means by which they perform this operation. At the synapse, pre-synaptic neurons or effectors (e.g. neurotransmitters) released from another site interact with the membrane receptors of the target (post-synaptic) cells, triggering a series of biochemical events. These biochemical events excite or inhibit post-synaptic neurons.
