Usefull but could be better.
By oktay cem K. on 23. January 2018 for Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)

if I don't know anything about para/symp nervous system, I wouldn't understand clearly. For example, in symphatetic outflow diagram, I wouldn't understand where the exact location of white or gray ramus in human body on the picture you used.

 
Odd choice for figure used
By Kerry T. on 23. January 2018 for Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS): Output and Thoracolumbar Outflow

I understood SNS input and output quite well prior to watching this video. There are much better figures in textbooks to describe output pathways. I found the figure used a very odd departure from traditional figures and much more confusing.

 
great lectures
By Kristin S. on 22. January 2018 for Overview – Local Anesthetics

I've never heard someone explain pKa and drug mechanism so simply before.
