#neurons in action, demonstrating long term potentiation; this is how we learn!! By strengthening out brain's connections, or synapses (seen by the RGB LED), our brains wire together nee information.

There's a full demo of all the current capabilities of our neurons up on our facebook page, link in bio.

While action potentials are all or nothing, the #voltage is either high or low, voltage behaves as a gradient as it comes into the #neuron's #dendrites. In this clip you can see as a constant input comes into the neuron's apical dendrite it travels down the dendrite as a gradient until it reaches the soma and axon hillock where it sets off an action potential once a voltage threshold is reached. Also unlike an action potential, which generally travels one way, dendritic current can flow in any way it likes as you can see it also travels upwards to the tuft dendrites.

Two #glassblown #neurons with #arduino's running software to simulate the complete physiology of neurons. How to's and rubber models coming soon!
