Neurology


  • Introduction
  • Evolution
  • Nervous System Structure
  • Neurons - the functioning cell of the nervous system, has 3 basic parts:
  • Glial Cells
  • Synapses
  • Resting Membrane Potential
  • Local Changes in Potential
  • Action Potentials
  • Impulse Propagation
  • Speed of Propagation
  • Synaptic Transmission
  • Excitatory and Inhibitory Synapses
  • Electrical Synapses
  • Chemical Transmission
  • Indirect Synaptic Transmission
  • Neurotransmitters
  • Drugs and the Brain
  • Interpretation of Messages
  • Neurosecretion
  • The Nervous System Structure
  • Classification of Neurons
  • Divisions of the Vertebrate Nervous System
  • The Vertebrate Nervous System
  • PNS - Cranial and Spinal Nerves
  • Embryonic Development of the Vertebrate Brain
  • Brainstem
  • diencephalon - contains the epithalamus, thalamus, hypothalamus, and the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland
  • Telencephalon - anterior part of the forebrain
  • Cerebrum
  • Regions of the Cerebrum
  • CNS Injuries
  • Brain Disorders
