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.

thank you but....
By Nicolle . on 29. June 2023 for Vision: Signal Termination and Convergence

honestly, it almost looks like it was explained in the most unclear way I ever hear. on&off centers, no explanation on the laters of the retina, where did the signal send further by bipolar cells and maybe a little bit on the pathway could be nice probably a little bit more thinking need to be done here in order to makes it easier to understand

información general
By Renato B. on 12. February 2023 for Vision: Lens, Pupil and Humors

le falta un poco más de información, pero como algo general está bien.

Very understandable

Thank you Doctor Wilson for your simple and understandable lecture.

By Mauro C. on 27. October 2022 for Postsynaptic Potential (PSP) and Binding

the way how the professor explain the topic is very easy to learn
