    • Neurons
      • Neuronal transmission
        • Inside a neuron - from one end to the other
          • Electrical signal
            • Neural membrane - polarised
              • Stimulated neuron reverses its polarity in an area
                • Stimulates reversed polarity (action potential) further down the neuron
                  • Action potential reaches axon terminal
                    • Neurotransmitter released, diffuses through synaptic gap
                      • Neurotransmitters reach receptors of next neuron, stimulating them
                        • Neural membrane - polarised

                                  • Neurotransmitters reach receptors of next neuron, stimulating them
      • Synaptic
        • Occurs between neurons (through synapse)
          • Chemical  signal
