Quantum (noun, pl. quanta): The amount of neurotransmitter stored within a single vesicle of a neuron. It is quantitatively the smallest amount of information that can be transmitted between nerves in the human body. We have hijacked this concept to describe the smallest amount of information we can share with you on a neurology podcast. In this series, which we have called Quanta, we'll be discussing the most fundamental neurologic principles so that our main episodes won't have to. Enjoy!
