A series of neuroscience podcasts aimed at medical students with clinical comments.
7. Neurological basis of movement
Reflex arcs, lower motor neurones, upper motor neurones, the cerebellum, basal ganglia, the frontal cortex and even decussations get a mention.
6. Pain pathways
We cover the neuroanatomy, and a little neuroscience, of how pain is perceived by the brain and how analgesics and the brain itself can modify this.
Phil talks about the neuroscience of addiction and withdrawal.
4. Autonomic nervous system
Phil and Sam talk about the anatomy of the autonomic nervous system, the neurotransmitters involved and pharmacological targets.
Phil tries to teach Sam about neurotransmitters and how they work. We work through a list of the main neurotransmitters and give an overview of their functions.
2. Neurobiology of appetite regulation
Phil tells Sam why his weight is fairly stable, what happens in his brain when he gets hungry and what changes when he has eaten. We talk about the adipostat, leptin, ghrelin and obesity, why we choose particular foods and how dopamine, opioids and (probably) serotonin are involved.

I love this podcast! There’s soo much information available and it’s conveyed beautifully. I’m soo happy you finally put out another podcast, hopefully won’t have to wait 7/8 years for the next (;.
I personally like how Dr. Sam Webster can be ‘uninterested’ or has forgotten some of the content, as it relates to how some students may feel in a lecture, or even how I felt myself throughout sometimes.
Great stuff. Really, really well presented and informative. More please!!
