GO term:postsynaptic membrane
Synonym: post-synaptic membrane
GO id:GO:0045211
Definition:A specialized area of membrane facing the presynaptic membrane on the tip of the nerve ending and separated from it by a minute cleft (the synaptic cleft). Neurotransmitters across the synaptic cleft and transmit the signal to the postsynaptic membrane.
