Aren't all facts, at the neuron and synapse level, really the same?
As for Cain, one wonders what synapse snapped into action there.
Inside, the cacophony of neon signs are a synapse stimulus package for your jet-lagged mind.
If you followed such things at the time, perhaps the phrase “Phase II report” will snap a synapse or two.
These are transferred from neuron to neuron through the synapse.
Every synapse sagged under the increasing load of sensitivity.
The contact of the axon of one neuron with the dendrons of another is called a synapse.
Maybe his secretary's two neurones would fail to synapse this morning, and she'd lose them altogether.
The synapse, then, is not a thing, but simply a junction between two neurones.
The place of juxtaposition of the end of one neurone against the beginning of another is called the synapse.
"junction between two nerve cells," 1899, from Greek synapsis "conjunction," from synaptein "to clasp," from syn- "together" (see syn-) + haptein "to fasten." Related to apse. Introduced by English physiologist Sir Michael Foster (1836-1907) at the suggestion of English classical scholar Arthur Woollgar Verral (1851-1912).
synapse syn·apse (sĭn'āps', sĭ-nāps')
The junction across which a nerve impulse passes from an axon terminal to a neuron, a muscle cell, or a gland cell.
The small junction across which a nerve impulse passes from one nerve cell to another nerve cell, a muscle cell, or a gland cell. The synapse consists of the synaptic terminal, or presynaptic ending, of a sending neuron, a postsynaptic ending of the receiving cell that contains receptor sites, and the space between them (the synaptic cleft). The synaptic terminal contains neurotransmitters and cell organelles including mitochondria. An electrical impulse in the sending neuron triggers the migration of vesicles containing neurotransmitters toward the membrane of the synaptic terminal. The vesicle membrane fuses with the presynaptic membrane, and the neurotransmitters are released into the synaptic cleft and bind to receptors of the connecting cell where they excite or inhibit electrical impulses. See also neurotransmitter.
