DpolarisationWriting the text of this work may seem a priori an easy task, but this is not the case. It took me over 4 months just for that. This is due to the fact that unlike the "classic" texts of physiology, write a script for a video requires special care.

What I do for writing each section: I take my time, I look if there is already a video on the same subject, I read a lot on the issue while taking capital notes I have to emphasize in my article final.

Happens after the step of weaving, I make my text so that it contains all the key points and notes I collected in my notebook. In general, each phrase is a scene that I pre-conceptualized in my head in agreement with previous and following scenes. After I schematizes each scene on a page of a book dedicated to sketching (rudimentary hand that must contain the final scene graph).

The goal for each article is to describe a maximum of interesting phenomena with a minimum of words and a maximum of simplicity.

When it comes to make a video like this, the text is a story that begins with something common, general the viewer recognizes and understands, and can then progress gradually without losing their attention.

Sometimes simply explain a phenomenon is a nearly impossible task, especially electrophysiology. The example of the resting potential which must explain the phenomenon in terms of complicated mathematical equations in order to present it. I spent several hours on the Futura-Science forum with professionals to know what formula can be used to explain the resting potential without resorting to any equation. The formula may seem biased, but it is still very close to what is really happening.

The goal in each subject is not to be exhaustive or to explain everything, far from it. The objective is to stimulate and awaken the viewer's curiosity to read more. Moreover, the text of this thesis is full of links that point to the reference books to dig the ideas presented here.

Different aspects of neurophysiology are treated on the support from the simplest to the most complicated, I start with the anatomy of the nervous structures and the basic principles of neurological function, then sensorimotor systems and finally the higher functions. Chapter neurological disorders and focused on the anatomical substratum pathophysiology of each disease.
