A chemical synapse is the distinguishable gap (between 15-200nm wide)<ref>http://michaeldmann.net/mann13.html</ref> between the axon terminal of one [[Neurone|neuron]]&nbsp;cell and the [[Dendrites|dendrites]] of another. Electrical signals are able to continue across a chemical synapse due to the activity of [[Neurotransmitter|neurotransmitters]]&nbsp;<ref>http://www.mind.ilstu.edu/curriculum/neurons_intro/neurons_intro.php</ref>. Neurotransmitters are chemicals such as acetylcholine or dopamine.
