What is a synapsis
 Neurons have specialized projections calleddendritesandaxons. Dendrites  bring information
to
the cell body and axons take information
away
from thecell body.Information from one neuron flows to another neuron across asynapse. Thesynapse is a small gap separating 2 neurons. The synapse consists of:1. a presynaptic ending that containsneurotransmitters, mitochondria and other cell organelles,2. a postsynaptic ending that contains receptor sites for neurotransmitters and,3. the synaptic cleft: a space between the presynaptic and postsynaptic endings
