Nerve Tissue

Nerve Tissue

by Geoffrey Meyer, PhD

Neurobiology is a vast and rapidly expanding field with significant clinical and technological implications. It asks big questions like, “how does consciousness develop” and “what composes a personality?” and reduces them to quantitative study. The neuron, which mediates the transfer of information throughout the body via electrochemical signals, is the fundamental unit of neurobiology. In this course, we discuss the anatomy of the nervous system, its various components, and their functions.

Very good explanation, to understand from beginning!!! I was really afraid about Histology, but Dr. Meyer's explanation gave me confidence and helped me to build a solid foundation, in order to learn more info later on. Thank you, Dr. Meyer!!! You are one of my favourite lecturer! P.S. Since I've studied integrating in my study plan Lecturio"s lectures by Dr. Meyer, my grades at Histology are significally improved!

It's An Good Overview And Histological Studies Of Ganglion.,But There is Need to Tell Stains Name

Disappointing Lecture
By AUSTIN C. on 02. December 2020 for Major Types of Neurons

Dr. Meyer is a great teacher, a lot from my experience with his videos regarding the introduction to the mammalian cell however, this video definitely left a lot to be discerned and was not very informative. Required me to do a lot of googling to make sense of much of these... Hard to follow and disappointing.
