brain

Synapse with many receptors labelled as strong connection and one with few receptors labelled as weak. In order for cells to create a strong connection, they must be able to add receptors to their surface. Adding receptors means it takes fewer chemical messengers to continue the signal. On the other hand, the brain can also remove receptors from the surface. Without as many receptors, it takes a lot of chemical messengers to continue the signal.
