There are 5 comments on A Picture-Perfect Look at How Electrical Activity Travels through the Brain

  1. I’m currently working on a project about the eradication of epileptic seizures. So my question is where and how do epileptic seizures start in the brain? What causes certain individuals to suffer from epileptic seizures and some not? What is the electrical activity like when some one is undergoing an epileptic seizure

  2. If the brain is electrical in nature? (And we know that electricity cannot be destroyed), what then happens to that energy once our bodies have completely broken down after death?

  3. According to Dr. Leroy Little Bear, professor emeritus at the University of Lethbridge, and member of the Blackfoot tribe in Canada, while physicists were contemplating the particle/wave duality of electrons and matter in general, Little Bear asserted that in Native Science, it’s all waves, energy waves, and those waves are spirit. When we die, those particular wave patterns dissipate and take on a different configuration. But you are still you. YouTube has several of his lectures. I was able to attend the one in 2011 at the Heard Museum at Phoenix. It was part of a series of Native American speakers sponsored by Arizona State University. This particular one compared Western and Native Science, which Little Bear said were becoming closer to one another through discoveries in quantum physics and string theory. You might want to check it out.

  4. Ok. But now the real question, where does the electricity come from? Does the pregnant person’s brain gain more electricity to give to the child?
