BrainWaves Quanta: Aphasiology

MedLink Neurology
Podcast is delighted to feature selected episodes from BrainWaves, courtesy of James E Siegler MD, its originator and host. BrainWaves is an academic audio podcast whose mission is to educate medical providers through clinical cases and topical reviews in neurology, medicine, and the humanities, and episodes originally aired from 2016 to 2021.

Originally released: July 18, 2017

Quantum (noun, pl. quanta): The amount of neurotransmitter stored within a single vesicle of a neuron. It is quantitatively the smallest amount of information that can be transmitted between nerves in the human body. We have hijacked this concept to describe the smallest amount of information we can share with you on a neurology podcast. In this series, which we have called Quanta, we'll be discussing the most fundamental neurologic principles so that our main episodes won't have to. Enjoy! BrainWaves podcasts and online content are intended for medical education only and should not be used to guide medical decision-making in routine clinical practice.

We believe that the principles expressed or implied in the podcast remain valid, but certain details may be superseded by evolving knowledge since the episode’s original release date.
