Solution

The correct option is A Acetylcholine
  • The neurotransmitter which communicates between two neurons or between a neuron and a muscle is acetylcholine.
  • Acetylcholine is the organic compound that helps in the transmission of a nerve impulse from one neuron to another neuron.
  • It functions in the peripheral nervous system and central nervous system both as an activator and inhibitor.
  • In the peripheral nervous system, it causes skeletal muscles to contract. In the central nervous system, it inhibits the activation of the cholinergic system.
    Hence, the correct answer is option A.
