Nerves communicate at specialized cell junctions known as synapses. In response to some stimuli, in many cases an action potential, the pre-synaptic nerve releases signal molecules
when a neuron is stimulated it releases "neurotransmitters"such as "serotonin" into the tiny gap between the two neurons,causing the next neuron in line to also
Action potentials are extremely complicated, and cannot be explained in a little response such as this. Basically, a current flows down the body of an axon by separation and movements
