This video combines great visuals with simple explanations.  It covers what nerves do, how they operate, some basic terms, and how information in the brain works.  It’s a great video to explore the most basic description of how the cells in our brain collaborate to produce of feelings, sensations, and thoughts.  A good introduction to discussions of consciousness, naturalism, etc.
