These are the tiny gaps between individual neurons (cells in the brain). Information, in the form of electrical impulses, travels along a neuron. When it reaches the end, these impulses trigger the release of neurotransmitters which travel across the synapse to the next neuron, and so the signal can continue. Synapses make sure that information only moves in one direction.
