- Brain : The core unit of a central nervous system.
- Cerebellum : The small brain — a part of the hindbrain in vertebrates.
- Neocortex : The six-layered outer layer of the mammalian brain.
- Neuron : An excitable cell that is specialized to conduct nerve impulses.
- Olfactory bulb : A structure in the vertebrate brain which is responsible for processing information from odour receptors in the nose.
- Orch-OR : A speculative theory of consciousness proposed in the mid-1990s by British theoretical physicist Sir Roger Penrose and American anesthesiologist Stuart Hameroff.
- Resting potential : Potential difference between the two sides of the membrane of a nerve cell when the cell is not conducting an impulse, the resting potential for a neuron being between 50 and 100 millivolts.
- Shunting : An event in the neuron which occurs when an excitatory postsynaptic potential and an inhibitory postsynaptic potential are occurring close to each other on a dendrite.
- Synapse : Contact point between neurons and other cells, crucial for nerve signalling
