Write a 350- to 700-word response to the following: Explain the communication process of neurons in the brain. List some common neurotransmitters and describe their effect on behavior. When ever there is something that we have to do there is going to be impulses sent throughout our body to get it done. For example, when we want to swing a bat, the message is sent from our brain through a system of neurons and neurotransmitters so that our arm and body move in order to hit that bat. Through this vase system we can move our body and move around in this world. Neurons in the brain communicate through what is called an electrochemical process. Each neuron will go through a rapid electrical change called Action Potential when it gets enough of a proper message. The message will then travel down the Axon to the terminal buttons and causes the release neurotransmitters that will travel to the next neuron. Since neurons do not touch each other, they have what is called an synaptic cleft. This is where a space between them so that the presynaptic neuron, which is the sending neuron and postsynaptic neuron, the receiving neuron. In the presynaptic there are sacs called synaptic vesicles, which hold neurotransmitters that send the message from one neuron to the other. The way they do this is when released they fit into the dendrite of the next neuron for a moment to send the message.
