Electrophysiology

Good morning Friends,

This week we get into the electrophysiology of the brain, the part of our strange anatomy that sounds like a super hero origin story. It even has a super hero name... "action potential!" The release of the neurotransmitters that we talked about last week is regulated by a reaction of electrical signals. It's a complicated but beautiful mess of electrical and chemical reactions that regulate our reactions and responses. It's enough to make your head hurt to think about, or is that just a cascade of chemicals released by an electrical jolt?

If you want a deeper understanding of what we are discussing, here is a good video below.
