Now we’re ready to use the physics definition of WORK to develop ideas about — and formulas for — some important FORMS of energy. By “forms of energy,” I don’t mean anything anthropocentric (like enthusiasm, or spirit). And I don’t mean anything BIOcentric (like a mysterious life energy, or the Chinese Qi). It turns out

So we’ve gotten kind of used to drawing the heart with four chambers. I’m going to draw it with four chambers here, something like this, with two chambers on top. Those are the atria. And then I’m going to draw some slightly larger chambers down below. These are the ventricles. And just to label it,

So in the last video we talked about how you have a higher concentration of potassium on the inside– around 150 millimoles per liter –than you do on the outside– let’s say around five millimoles per liter. Just to recap some important points we brought up, we said that essentially what happens is that you

In this video, I want to talk about how action potentials are generated the trigger zone and how they’re conducted down the axon. So I’ve drawn a soma here in red and one axon in green. And I’ve blown up the axon to a very large size just so I had some room to draw.

Today, actually, is a very special day for me, because it is my birthday. (Applause) And so, thanks to all of you for joining the party. (Laughter) But every time you throw a party, there’s someone there to spoil it. Right? (Laughter) And I’m a physicist, and this time I brought another physicist along to

In this video, I want to talk about the action potentials of neurons. Here we have our neuron with soma in red and a larger than normal axon in green. And now I’ve drawn a myelin sheath in yellow around the axon and a couple of larger than normal dendrites in blue. And here’s our

>>Dr. Ketchum: In this lecture we’re going to be discussing postsynaptic potentials, and specifically, we’re going to be focusing on the excitatory postsynaptic potentials. Before we begin, let’s take a look at our outline for this chapter. And so this segment is on synaptic transmission and how a presynaptic neuron communicates with a postsynaptic neuron,
