Answer:

Axon, dendrite, neurotransmitters

Explanation:

The neuronal synapse is a gap between the presynaptic membrane (axon of one neuron) and a dendrite (postsynaptic membrane) across which neurotransmitters are transported. After the neurotransmitters cross the synapse, they bind to specific receptors on the postsynaptic membrane.
