The nature of nerve impulse is electrochemical. The transmission of a nerve impulse along a neuron from one end to the other occurs as a result of electrical changes across the membrane of the neuron. Synapse is contact site between two neurons or neuron and other cell. In the electrical synapse electrical current may pass directly from one neuron to another. In chemical synapses nerve impulse transmission involves the release of a chemical neurotransmitter.
