The human brain is made of billions of neurons, cells with long branch-shaped projections that convey electrical and chemical information to power every function of the body. Every neuron works in harmony, but they never physically connect. Instead, two neurons communicate by passing neurotransmitters across tiny gaps between the cells. This structure is known as a synapse.
