O A Revised History:

3000 years ago, the Chinese & Minoans independantly thought of

the vital flow of life that sustained the human body

→ (primarily identified the carculatory systems The Egyptious first wrote down a word for brain: BOLD → Hippocrates claimed the brain was responciple for emotions as

well as motion → Galen of Rome was the Gladiator's physician, first drew the

brain & started making connections to injuries and brain loss of function

Andreas vesalius in the Renasanse first accurately diagramed the brain from cadavers (friends w/ Micheal Angelo gor → Descarte came up with the phylosophy of Dualism: Mind & Body

Who is andreas vesalius?

Generated separated fields of psychology & biology → Robert Hook & heeuwenhoek in the 1600's discovered cells in all

plants & animals - except the brain!

→ phrenology studying the brain based on lumps, assuming

it was made only of wires & not cells (1700's phylosophy → camillo, and Ramony o casal developed staining methods for

cells & found there in the brain. ut → Neuvonal Doctrine the brain is made of nerve cells

to Local Graded Potentials into Action Potentials Any sort of external

stimuli that the nevron is designed to sense results in some lever of change to the resting potential as Nations flow into the cell.

→ When the input stimoli is small, the result is a localized

receptor potential I Varries in amplitude (Graded) depending on signal strength

only travels a short distance along the newronal axon, b/c the current propogation depends on the passive

electrical properties of the cell → when the local potential is stimulated above a threshold

level, the all-ov-nothing action potential is triggered

Any signal above the threshold generate a signal of

the same amplituds that travels rapidly along the neuron teh The intensity of the stimulus we feel is conveyed by on the frequency of action potential firing We also discuss several other topics like biol 336
