These cells communicate to the other cells through synapse to carry out different functions of the body. Synapse is the gap between the two neurons but is not functional one. The chemicals in the neurons are neurotransmitters which are released at the end of the axon in the synaptic cleft through vesicles. Afterwards the neurotransmitters bind to the receptor site of the receiving neuron for the progress of the message to a particular part of the body.

If it is produced in the lesser amount in the brain part Substentia Nigra a person becomes a patient of depression. Similarly dopamine is another neurotransmitter that is related to the appropriateness of behavior. If its amount is increased, behavior becomes totally absurd and a person losses contact with reality. In severe cases one becomes a patient of a disorder called Schizophrenia. If there is imbalance in the regulation of GABA neurotransmitter, one becomes anxious about the minor life events. For further information the following link is quite helpful:
