Explanation of Solution

Neurons or nerve cells are present in the central nervous system. Neurons are present in billions in the human nervous system. They have dendrites and axons as cytoplasmic extensions. Dendrites receive nerve impulses and axons send nerve impulses to another nerve cell. Nerve cells are functionally connected with each other at junctions that are known as a synapse. Synapse is located between the axon of one cell and dendrite of another cell. The gap exhibited between synapse is called synaptic cleft. A packet of chemicals is located at the tip of the axon which is called neurotransmitters...
