    not quite clear on the question but i think you are refering to what is called an ACTION POTENTIAL.

    When acytelcholine (ACh) transverses a synapse and connects with the receptor on the other side it creates what is called an ACTION POTENTIAL which then sends an electrochemical signal down that nerve to its then terminal spot being either another synapse or the MEP (motor end plate) if it is an efferent nerve. If the nerve is an afferent nerve, the AP goes up the spine to the brain..whith 2 or three synapses along the way before it terminates in the cortex for a response to the efferent nerve
