Playing with a neuron!

After having spent the whole Sunday studying the brain and the learning process, I can tell that the biggest lesson of the day was “All that I know is that I know nothing”! I did find some interesting resources though (through the EVO session on neuroscience). One of them is the site below. It offers a very interesting animation on the neuron, its parts and you can even choose a combination of inputs that will make it “fire”.

It is a much more interactive way of learning about the nervous system than just reading or listening to abstract explanations. The transmission section is especially interesting!

Soon I’ll have to go to bed, otherwise I’ll have a short circuit in my synapses…
