Right now, modern technology is progressing at incredible rates - even feeling axon transmission fast!
As these technologies merge with the personal health and optimisation worlds, the neuron and its workings are becoming more and more of a focal point. And for good reason. As human populations stretch into longer life-spans, so increases the battle with neuronal and cognitive function decline.
Think Dementia, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s.
The good news? In this age of technology and modern nutrition, there is plenty that an informed person can do to protect their neurons and their function. It is important to start as young as possible, these conditions are not just the flip of a switch. These are a progressive decline. Alzheimers has even shown predictive measures that can be taken 15 years before symptoms show.  But first, to get informed.
Stepping in, our VitaKea series… The Neuron!
With this group of articles we will be looking to cover the well-established understanding on the neuron and related systems. But as a fresh-face-friendly introducer, this article will guide you through the principle function of a neuron, overview the key components that make a neuron, and the process by how it operates. This providing the foundations to dive in a little deeper in the discussions to come. But enough ado, there is a whole world of cell and molecular biology awaiting you!
