In psychology, a synapse is the junction between two neurons where information is transmitted from one neuron to another. It consists of the axon terminal of the sending neuron, the synaptic cleft (a small gap), and the dendrite or cell body of the receiving neuron. Neurotransmitters are released across this gap to convey signals between the neurons.
Brainwaves are electrical impulses in the brain which occur at various frequencies. Brainwaves are produced by synchronised electrical pulses from millions of neurons communicating with each other all at once! Learn about the various brain waves and their functions in our latest infographic.

Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that transport signals between neurons through the target cells in your glands, muscles, and nerves. They play a vital part in our body’s nervous system controls which help regulate: * Emotions * Appetite and digestion * Mood * Concentration * Muscle movement * Heart rate * Breathing Swipe left to learn about 8 #neurotransmitters and their functions.
