Structure Of The Nervous System
In this section you will examine the macro- and micro-scopic structure of the nervous system and how these arise during development.
19  cards
Receptors, Neurotransmitters And Drugs
The nervous system uses a wide variety of neurotransmitters and associated receptor systems to send and modulate signals. In this section you will learn some basic concepts of neuropharmacology and then apply these in the context of the nervous system.
0  cards
In this section you will follow in detail the journey of an electrical signal from one neuron to the next via a chemical synapse. You will also begin to explore how these synapses change their properties in response to experience, which is the basis for learning and memory. Concepts in this section will build on learnings from earlier in the course.
0  cards
Cognitive Neuroscience
In this section we will start to explore some of the complex things the brain can do such as learn, recall and process information.
