Physiology of Receptor Activation - For neurons, altering gene expression in response to extracellular signals is a fundamental process, thus the biochemical and physiological changes that occur in neurons during the variety of activities that we experience in our lifetimes are largely a result of gene activation and suppression by signals received via receptor systems from the environment. The receptors are specialized structures present on the surface of the bi-laminar neuron plasma membrane that respond in a specific manner when a structurally specific compound or ligand binds to them.
Activation of these receptor systems occurs via a variety of signal specific chemical transmitters such as hormones, cytokines, neuropeptides and neurotransmitters. These eventually modulate the activation (increase in transcriptional activity) or the inhibition, (decreased transcriptional activity) of specific genes in the neuron through various types of synaptic transmission.
Synaptic transmission has been conceptualized as a set of processes by which neurotransmitters, acting through their receptors, caused changes in the conductance of specific ion into and out of the neuron to produce excitatory or inhibitory postsynaptic potentials. However, it has become evident that neurotransmitters elicit diverse and complicated effects in target neurons. This has led to the development of a much more complex view of synaptic transmission (Huganir and Greengard, 1990).
Activation of receptors can also modulate other activities of the neuron such as glucose uptake and consumption rates, oxygen utilization, neurotransmitter production, and enzyme concentrations.
TAKING THIS COURSE
This course consists of 6 lessons and a final exam.
This module is designed to help get you an understanding of the function of the nervous system.
The lessons consist of PDF documents and videos. For the final exam, participants can take a maximum of 2 attempts to achieve a passing score of 80% or higher. Participants who achieve a passing score can print out an Australian Institute of Clinical Neuroscience CEU certificate of completion. Participants who do not pass the final exam after 2 attempts will need to re-pay for and repeat the entire course to attempt to earn credit.

Dr. Randy Beck is an internationally renown expert in the field of clinical neuroplasticity and neuroplastic restructuring techniques. His textbooks on the subject are considered the standards in education and clinical practice in the field of Functional Neurology.
Dr Beck currently guest lectures in the School of Medicine, University of Western Australia in the school of Pyschiatry and Clinical Neuroscience and has previously held positions as Professor in Clinical Neurology at the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies in Florida, USA and Senior Lecturer in Neurology and Clinical Diagnosis at Murdcoh University in Perth. Dr. Beck is the past President of the Australasian Academy of Functional Neurology.
Dr Beck graduated from The University of Western Ontario, London and Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, Toronto, Canada. He has subsequently completed a PhD focusing on Psychoneuroimmunology. He has been involved with post-graduate and undergraduate education of chiropractors and medical students for over 15 years. Dr Beck holds fellowships in both the Australasian Academy of Functional Neurology and the American College of Functional Neurology. He is currently the chairman of the advisory committee of the Australasian Institute of Clinical Neuroscience.
Dr Beck has authored several textbooks, published by Elsevier. The first and second texts entitled Functional Neurology for Practitioners of Manual Therapy and Functional Neurology for Practitioners of Manual Medicine remain the pivotal foundational texts in the field. Dr Beck has also authored numerous textbook chapters, journal articles and reviews in peer-reviewed journals.
Dr Beck is the recipient of the prestigious Excellence in Teaching award from Murdoch University and the Neurologist of the year award of the International Association of Functional Neurology, Rehabilitation and Ergonomics.
