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.

Hi Lecturio Team, Yes, I like it a lot neurophysiology by doctor Thad Wilson. Great presentation and explanation. In my view, the neurophysiology is one of the vital key of the medicine by knowing it and combining knowledge and skills with anatomy, pathophysiology and surgery you could figure out pathology in terms of when you facing patients with traumatic injury . In contrast when you seeing infected patient with contagious viruses, bacteria and fungi and so on, of course you need to immediately think about combining knowledge and skills of microbiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology and biochemistry. Yes, all courses are given so well presented. Yes . I certainly enjoyed it Lecturio as it has all components of courses which are important for every doctor who wants to excel their skills. Many thanks indeed for the course organizers, Showing on cadaver will be even better to get precise knowledge and skills.
