Formatted abstract
Our treatment of the human condition can be thought of as the direct correlation of how well we understand the functioning of the human brain—in other words, how we see wellness, and its counterpart psychopathology, directly depends on our view of the brain. For many years the brain was viewed as an electrical system, a system that transfers electrical signals from key neural areas to other neural areas.

Since Julius Bernstein identified the electrical properties of the brain’s cells—their resting and action potentials, how electrical signals activate communication between one brain cell and another—a host of researchers have focused on numerous aspects of this signalling process, and explored the implications of this in terms of wellness and un-wellness (pathology), all related to neural signalling.
