Understanding the spikes of the neurons

What is a neuronal spike? Neuronal spike is an electrical signal generated by a neuron. Neuronal cells have a membrane potential which means that the electric charge (expressed in voltage) is not the same on both side of its membrane. This is due to the difference in ion concentrations on external versus internal side of …

Communication between neurons and external world

Signalling between neurons allows the storage and processing of information. Further, this information can flow to other living tissues or, ex vivo, to devices which are connected to neurons. The understanding of these processes can be used in two main directions: 1. In vivo: To explain how our brains perceives the environment and controls all …

Understanding signal processing between neurons

The ability to form large number of strong connections between neurons in the brain is believed to be one of the crucial factors affecting brain function. This is quite clear, given the fact that our cognitive function depends on effective communication between different neurons. This communication occurs via synapses, which allow electrical or chemical signal transmission …
