Class 1: The Endocannabinoid System Physiology
Endocannabinoid Detailed Tour: Molecules and Receptors
Understanding the Endocannabinoid system will help you understand human neurophysiology in a new way. This unique course dives deeply into consciousness through exploration of the scientific literature and understanding of all of the major neurotransmitters and hormones that create our experience.
We learn about how the endocannabinoid system acts as the endogenous reward and regeneration modulation system. The endocannabinoids help regulate serotonin and dopamine, along with many other pathways that regulate pain, appetite, metabolism, mood, memory, nervous system regeneration, immune modulation and more.
By completing this course, you'll gain a deep and detailed understanding of neurophysiology in a holistic context, and how the endocannabinoid system acts as a master regulator and modulator of this system.
