  • Lecture 1
    • CELLS
      • Eukaryotic cell: makes up our bodies
      • Prokaryotic cell: is bacteria (can be good or bad)
    • Mitochondria-powerhouse of the cell where all energy comes from.
    • The cortex is all of the outside of your brain, where all pre-synapses are. They go into the brain and send messages.
      • The size of cortex is relaxed to amount of information being processed.
    • SYSTEMS
      • The nervous system: anything where an electrical message is sent (when brain sends all messages out e.g. to spine).
      • Vascular system: anything where a chemical message is sent (when glucose is sent to the pancreas to tell the body when you need more sugar).
