This display of amazing images illustrates the nervous system’s structure and function. Modern computerized microscopy has provided a clearer view of the details of the many parts of the nervous system. Notice images of organs in other anatomic systems may be included on this board because they possess sensory neurons or are major targets of nervous system control.

How Nerve Cells Stop Others "Listening In"

If you want to share a secret with a friend in a busy environment, you may try to find a quiet spot, close the doors and shield the conversation from possible eavesdroppers. A new study has shown that neurons can adopt similar levels of privacy when communicating with their neighbor.

Neuroscience Fundamentals Glossary: Postsynaptic Integration

POSTSYNAPTIC INTEGRATION Excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs) • Depolarize the membrane. - Makes the membrane less negative. • Positive ions (ex. sodium) travel into the cell. Inhibitory postsynaptic potentials (IPSPs) • Hyperpolarize the membrane. - Make the membrane more negative. • Negative ions (ex. chloride) travel into the cell. • Positive ions (ex. potassium) travel out of the cell. SUMMATION Definition • Adding together of EPSPs or IPSPs to influence the activity of the…

Gray Matter vs White Matter

The brain is an immensely complex structure, but there are ways we can divide up its anatomical structure into more discrete parts. One common divider is to separate the brain’s gray and white matter. But what are these two structures? How different are they from each other? How significant, and physiologically relevant, is this divide?
