Answer:

An action potential is just another name of nerve impulse.

Explanation:

An action potential is an electrical signal which is generated by the sum of input signals from other nerve cells and triggers the emptying of vesicles(containing neurotransmitters) in the synaptic cleft transferring the information and thus helping neurons to communicate with each other.
