Graphic Brain - Neurophysiology

Producer: Didactic Systems

This computer animated neuroscience software covers many aspects of neuroscience, including: neural membrane, resting/action potential, neuromuscular junction, synaptic transmission and neurochemistry, plasticity, development, ligand and voltage gated channels, G-protein mediated postsynaptic responses, auditory sensation, visual sensation, mechanical/chemical sensation, reflexes, cerebellum. Each of its topical modules (chapters) is a self-contained teaching unit (playing time 10-15 mins.). Graphic Brain - Neurophysiology complements most neuroscience texts and contains about 3 hours of animated instruction. It is particularly useful in teaching/learning about time- and space-varying phenomena, which it illustrates in a dynamic way (ion flow across membranes, axonal conduction, sensory transduction, muscle contraction, second messenger dynamics, neural network operation, etc.). Suitable for medical/graduate neuroscience courses and advanced undergraduate psychobiology courses.
