About the Course

The nervous system in our body, “communicates” with the muscle via neuromuscular junctions. This communication obeys the electrical principles and is dependent upon the chemical transmitters. Muscle receives its signals to contract from the nervous system through the neuromuscular junction. All this fascinating drama is part of nature’s ingenuity.
In our attempt to elaborate on these intriguing concepts, we have designed a course work on the physiology of muscle and nerve. In this course, you will learn that both muscle and nerve are excitable tissues and that the electrical principles governing their excitability are the same. The electrical properties, stimulus, impulse transmission, neuromuscular junction, and other such phenomena unique to muscle and nerve tissue along with the applied physiology and the principles of exercise are all explained in detail.

Course Delivery Format

This course is delivered entirely online. It consists of a series of comprehensive lectures by a professor in the subject, appropriately annotated with slides, animations and wherever necessary, interactive content. The delivery offers tremendous flexibility. You may pause a teacher while you refer to your textbooks (not includes) and to take notes. You may also rewind a segment to listen to the teacher again or you may skip a slide or two if you already know that bit. You may bookmark a segment that you wish to return to later, maybe to refresh just before your exams.  While the lessons in this course may be arranged in a particular order based on our curriculum, you have the flexibility to take them in order of your preference based on your personalized learning needs.


While this course is to help you learn the subject from an online faculty, it may help you in several ways even if you are already enrolled in some medical, dental or paramedical school. Many of our students felt that the format in which this course is delivered has helped them to cope up against the fast paced lectures in actual class – it’s like having a TV remote in class to self-pace your teacher. Animations help understand concepts better by making concepts easy to understand… and difficult to forget
