004 Ion Channels: The Proteins in the Membrane of Neurons

There are 4 important classes of proteins in the membrane of neurons: Passive/Leakage ion channels, Sodium-Potassium pumps, Voltage-gated ion channels, and Ligand-gated ion channels. In order to understand how the neurons functions, we have to understand how those channels work. Watch the following video to learn about these proteins.

    Thanks for the video, what I am hearing is that an artificial neuron made of non biological material will not need the complex process that comes with the 4 proteins
