Talking about Control and Coordination, we started the Nervous System unit watching this awareness test. It takes only one minute but you should sit down, relax and pay attention in order to answer the question “How many passes does the team in white make?”
Once we have had this funny and strange experience it is a good moment to start learning how does our nervous system works.
A nervous sytem introduction with its parts, and description of a neuron (1´34´´).
This is a simple video, like a power point presentation but very well narrated by a teacher (http://www.leslie-samuel.com) who explains us the parts of a neuron and the three different types of neurons (4´57´´).
The neural synapse (1´02´´).
Just in 31 seconds you can easily understand the reflex arc.
With this youtube video (1´16´) you can learn the anatomy of the brain.
In this other video, a medical 3D animation, you can also identify where the different parts of the brain are.
May be this little singing mouse can also help you remembering different parts of the brain.

Let´s understand what a brain stroke is (1´34´´).
