The action potential flows to the axon terminal depolarizing it. Voltage gated channels open and calcium flows into the terminal. The calcium flowing in causes exocytosis of the neurotransmitter. The neurotransmitter binds to the postsynaptic cell, causing a permeability change. The neurotransmitter is removed from the synaptic cleft and the cells return to rest.
