Synaptic cleft is the space in between neurons at a nerve synapse through which nerve impulses are transmitted by a neurotransmitter. It is the space between which communication or transfer of nerve impulses between neurons takes place.
Synaptic cleft can also be described as a small gap seperating the presynaptic neuron and the postsynaptic neuron. It is responsible for creating a physical barrier for electrical signal carried by one neuron to be transfered to another neuron. It is also the small space that exists between one neurons axon and the next neuron. Vesicals of neurotransmitters cross this gap and extend the nerve signall chemically.The synapse is like a wire that connects two cells together. Neurons pass information to each other through the synapse. The synapse contains: An ending with neurotransmitters, or nerves that carry information, located just before the synaptic tip, apresynaptic ending located in the synapse sending information, postsynaptic cell with places for neurotransmitters to land or receive information, and a synaptic cleft, a space located between the presynaptic and postsynaptic endings. Neurons communicate by sending an electrical signal.
