Anatomy tutorial on the basic structure of the synapse. This video doesn't cover action potential generation or detailed mechanisms of neurotransmission - this will be covered in separate physiology videos.

The structures we look at in this video are:
- chemical synapse vs electrical synapse
- axon
- terminal bouton/synaptic bouton
- voltage-gated calcium channels
- synaptic vesicles
- neurotransmitter, acetylcholine
- exocytosis
- presynaptic membrane, postsynaptic membrane
- synaptic cleft
- postsynaptic receptors
- neuromuscular junction
