Basic Neuron Functioning

  • Membrane Potentials

  • Action Potential

  • Generating Action Potentials

    • Spatial and Temporal SummationThis interactivity allows you to explore what is necessary to both increase and reduce the likelihood of synaptic communication to cause neurons to fire. (straight to applet).

    • Neural Coding.  To be able to function, the brain have a way of changing differences in stimulation or thoughts into different patterns of firing in the brain.  This is called neural coding.  This interactivity introduces a few basic types of neural coding.  (straight to applet).
