Diagram of a synapse.  Neurotransmitters are released from vesicles into the synaptic cleft after an action potential where they can interact with receptors.  Some neurotransmitter diffuses out of the cleft where it can activate receptors on other neurons or be cleared by transporters back into the cell.
