canadian goose jacket In /r/educationalgifs we strive to have short gifs that educate the subscribers in some way. canada goose As long as it is educational, and a gif, it is fine. But please read the rules before you post, in Canada Goose online order to help the mod team moderate, while also making this canada goose store a better place to post.

Canada Goose Parka Gifs are great at getting quick to digest info, and /r/educationalgifs strives to give you educational info in this quick to digest format. From chemical processes, to how plants work, to how machines work, /r/educationalgifs will explain many processes in the quick to see format of gifs.

canada goose deals Only Gif/HTML5 links please. No sound, videos or pictures. The preferred sites for gifs to be hosted on are imgur or gyfcat. These are reliable sources and thus we would love if you hosted your gifs using these sites.

Canada Goose Outlet Provide source if there is one. We won go https://www.canadagoosesale.biz hunting cheap canada goose uk you down, but at least be considerate of the creator.

Your title must be informative of what is going on in the gif, instead of the good ole “Look at this gem” or “Just a wheel”. They can be funny, but just consider this.

Any post canada goose coats that has been submitted in the past 3 months or is in the top canada goose coats on sale 100 of all time cannot be reposted and will be removed. Please report rule breaking posts.

If you feel that any Canada Goose Coats On Sale ruling is unfair/not correct, or if you have any canada goose sale other questions, feel free to message the /r/educationalgifs mod team.

buy canada goose jacket No recipe/cooking process related gifs allowed. Given this is happening canada goose clearance in culture, I don Canada Goose Parka know when they would be myelinated, but myelination buy canada goose jacket cheap does work by wrapping repeatedly around the axons. Alternatively, uk canada goose outlet it canada goose uk black friday could be the soma of other neurons moving up and down other neurons in order to move from the origin of growth outwards, which is a process that does take place during the development of brain structures. I a med student who is supposed to know about embryology, and these are my best guesses. However, neurons are notoriously fastidious to get to grow on culture, and who knows buy canada goose jacket how the lack of other cell signalling apparatuses that would happen in actual development is affecting these neuron growth. Normally there are chemical gradients created by neurons and supporting glial canada goose black friday sale cell types that guide certain neurons to grow in different directions and signal for neurons to be myelinated or not. But I have no idea what is going to happen uk canada goose on a dish.

canada goose clearance sale On second look, it looks like there is a fluorescent label on some sort of vesicular complex so that you can see when the cell is sending cell building blocks up and down axons. Maybe _()_/Let me help you.

Axons are the bridges between neurons that conduct action potentials (which is how cells communicate). Canada Goose sale Myelin is the white fat around the axons that makes the cell communication more efficient, and myelination is the process of putting myelin around the axons. Myelin is made by the mentioned Schwann cells and oligodendrocytes.

Canada Goose sale Glial cells are brain canada goose clearance sale cells that are not involved in the described communication process.

canada goose store “In culture” means that what you see has been extracted from a brain and is analyzed separately (in a dish; in vitro). The soma of a cell is the body of a cell.

canada goose coats Now try reading his or her text again.

canada goose clearance There are types of ions (atoms and molecules) inside and outside the neuron Canada Goose Online and axon. This is the “chemical” part. These ions are electrically charged and their canada goose uk outlet distribution in and outside the neuron determines the electrical charge inside and outside the neuron. This is the “electrical” part.

Canada Goose online At rest the neuron outside is positive and inside is negative. When receiving an action potential from another neuron, this flips: the outside becomes negative and the inside positive the start of this neuron action potential. This difference in potential spreads from the neuron to different segments of the axon (remember, the connection between neurons). Eventually, we reach the next neuron and the Canada Goose Outlet story repeats itself.

canada goose black friday sale This is how a signal can go from one corner of the brain to another.

canada goose coats on sale Now you may wonder, well if that how action potentials get passed around, and if each neuron has at least one connection with another neuron, what to stop an action potential from reaching every other neuron in the brain? That would make the brain a pretty bad information processing system if every event canada goose uk shop activates everything, so much for differentiating between events.

cheap Canada Goose Luckily each neuron has a threshold of potential change (caused, remember, by the distribution of ions) that it needs to reach for it to create an action potential itself. That is, for it to go all out and flip its potential to negative on the outside and positive on the inside. One incoming action potential is not always enough. Specifically, we know some neurons have a rule of saying for example: “I need to see at Canada Goose Jackets least 5 action potentials from all my neighbor neurons before I fire”. Or, “Only if this neighbor neurons gives me 3 action potentials within X amount cheap Canada Goose of time I fire myself.”Not sure if it the original but there some info here.

Neurons from a fetal animal growing in tissue culture.

Time lapse microscopy. 20xmagnification onto approx canada goose factory sale 3/4 inch chip maybe 200x mag onto screen. 15 min between images shown at 32fps = 8 hours per second.

Canada Goose Jackets The neural cells canadian goose jacket each contain a bright spot, which is a nucleus. And they seem in every case to have two processes axons? coming from opposite sides of the nucleus. Or you might say the nucleus is located somewhere along the elongated neuronal cell between the two ends that stretch out in opposite directions. At each end, there are many little branches spreading out.
