by Thad Wilson, PhD

Neurophysiology refers to all normal functions of the nervous system, including neuroconduction and how the nervous system interacts with other tissues, such as skeletal muscle and glands.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the basic principles of neuroconduction, including membrane and action potentials; myelination; the physiology of sight, hearing, balance and touch; the neuromuscular junction, and finally the autonomic nervous system (ANS).

For optimal comprehension, the student must have a preliminary understanding of molecular and cellular biology, emphasizing biochemistry, and the histology of the nervous system. The parallel study of the anatomy of the nervous system is encouraged. A good grasp on the physics of electricity, conduction, and currents is essential.
