Hi bobbym,

#518. Name the medial term / phrase : A wide, flat bundle of neural fibers beneath the cortex in the eutherian brain at the longitudinal fissure. It connects the left and right cerebral hemispheres and facilitates interhemispheric communication. It is the largest white matter structure in the brain, consisting of 200–250 million contralateral axonal projections.

Hi David and bobbym,

Very good attempt, bobbym and David!

#525. Name the medical term : They are endogenous chemicals that transmit signals across a synapse from one neuron (nerve cell) to another "target" neuron. They are released from synaptic vesicles in synapses into the synaptic cleft, where they are received by receptors on other synapses. Many of them are synthesized from plentiful and simple precursors such as amino acids, which are readily available from the diet and only require a small number of biosynthetic steps to convert them.
