THE HUMAN BRAIN: The brain works by transmitting information between neurons (or other receptor or effector cells) through electrochemical pulses. This transmission of information is produced during synapsis. During synapsis, neurons and cells connect and through chemical charges and electric pulses and neurotransmitters are exchanged, which are in charge of activating or inhibiting the action of the other cell. The axon’s terminal buttons are the pre-synaptic elements of neural communication, through which the neuron establishes communication with the dendrites, the soma, or even another axon.
