In a chemical synapse, when an impulse arrives at the axon terminal, it:
1. leads to the opening of the calcium channels at the post-synaptic membrane.
2. Stimulates the fusion of synaptic vesicles towards the pre-synaptic membrane.
3. causes the binding of the neurotransmitter of its receptors on the post-synaptic neuron.
4. activates the opening of the potassium channels in the axon terminal.
