There are certain channels and process that must be gone through in order for the message to get to the right place. In the nerviest system the dendrites send a chemical message to a neuron. Once the message is received the neuron will undergo an electrical charge or what is more commonly known as a nerve impulse. The nerve impulse will then travel down a thing call the axon to terminal buttons. When this happens neurotransmitter will go out and send the message to the next neuron in line. This transmitting from one nerve cell to another is called synapse. Neurons do not touch each other. The gap between them has a terminal button on one side and the dendrite of it the other, and this is called a synaptic cleft.
