Nerve Ending

This free form gradually coalesced into the form the end of a nerve’s axon. The business end, which transmits its information across a gap (the synapse) to the next nerve cell body. The splatters are the neurotransmitters, released into this space. These transmitters act on the next cell to change its membrane  properties to make it more or less likely to fire a nerve pulse.
