What happens at the synapse during a reflex?
Is it that chemicals are released and diffuse across the synapse via the relay Neuron to the motor?
Cheers

Yes. The relay neuron triggers the release of a chemical that diffuses across the synapse (transmitting the impulse across the gap too) to the motor neuron on the other side. That's what I've learnt. I'm pretty sure it's right😂

At the synapse, the electric impulse are carried by small chemical messengers called neurotransmitters from one neuron to another. This happens at every synapse of different types of neuron; a.g during an involuntary response (reflex) and voluntary response.
