Brain Synapses | Synchron

Ghost Medical Animation + VR Surgery
May 5, 2023


Brain synapses are the junctions between two neurons or between a neuron and a target cell, such as a muscle or gland. These tiny gaps, which measure about 20 nanometers in width, allow electrical and chemical signals to be transmitted between cells, enabling communication throughout the nervous system.

The synapses in the brain are the points where two neurons or a neuron and a target cell, such as a muscle or gland, meet. These small gaps, which are approximately 20 nanometers wide, allow for the transmission of electrical and chemical signals between cells, facilitating communication throughout the nervous system.

Synchron commissioned Ghost Medical Animation + VR Surgery to create a medical animation that illustrates the function of brain synapses. The animation demonstrates the release of neurotransmitters from the presynaptic neuron, which then bind to receptors on the postsynaptic neuron, initiating an electrical signal that travels down the neuron and on to other cells. This type of animation can be helpful in aiding students and patients in comprehending the intricate processes that occur within the brain and nervous system.

If you are looking to explain the workings of your medical devices and pharmaceutical products, Ghost Productions Medical Animation Studio & Surgical VR Developer can assist you. They can help you train more surgeons and increase the sales of your medical devices.
