Synaptic Transmission: Four Easy Steps (abridged)

Synaptic Transmission: Four Easy Steps (abridged) The nervous system is comprised of billions of specialized cells called neurons. Efficient communication between these cells is crucial to the normal functioning of the central and peripheral nervous systems.
