  1. AICA (Anterior Inferior Cerebellar Artery): This is a significant artery in the brain that supplies blood to various parts of the cerebellum and inner ear.
  2. Airway Protective Reflexes: These are reflex actions that protect the airway from foreign materials, preventing aspiration and maintaining effective respiration.
  3. Akinesia: A medical term referring to the inability to initiate movement due to muscle rigidity. It’s often associated with Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders.
  4. Allocortex: A type of cerebral cortex with fewer layers than the more prevalent neocortex. It plays a role in various functions including olfaction and memory.
  5. Allodynia: A condition where pain is caused by a stimulus that does not normally provoke pain, like a light touch. It’s often seen in conditions like neuropathies or fibromyalgia.
  6. Alveus: In neuroanatomy, the alveus is a layer of white matter that forms the surface of the hippocampus. It contains fibers that connect different parts of the hippocampus and link it to other brain areas.
  7. Alzheimer’s Disease: A chronic neurodegenerative disease that usually starts slowly and progressively worsens. It’s the cause of 60–70% of cases of dementia. The most common early symptom is difficulty in remembering recent events.
  8. Cholinergic Neurons in Alzheimer’s Disease: In Alzheimer’s, there’s a loss of cholinergic neurons in the brain, which is believed to contribute to cognitive decline and memory loss.
  9. Early Neurological Signs in Alzheimer’s Disease: This refers to the initial symptoms of Alzheimer’s, which often include memory lapses, confusion, and mood swings.
  10. Amacrine Cells: These are neurons found in the retina that play a critical role in the visual process, particularly in the transmission and integration of visual information.
  11. Amino Acids: Organic compounds that combine to form proteins. They are essential for various bodily functions.
  12. Amnesia: A deficit in memory caused by brain damage, disease, or psychological trauma. Amnesia can also be temporarily caused by the use of various sedatives and hypnotic drugs.
  13. Amygdala: An almond-shaped set of neurons located deep in the brain’s medial temporal lobe. It plays a key role in the processing of emotions such as fear, anger, and pleasure. It’s also responsible for determining what memories are stored and where they are stored in the brain.



  1. AICA (Anterior Inferior Cerebellar Artery): Imagine an artist named “Aida” painting the inner parts of a cerebellum model. The paint represents blood, highlighting the artery’s role in supplying blood. Remember AICA as “Artist Aida in Cerebellum Artistry.”
  2. Airway Protective Reflexes: Picture an airway (a giant nose and mouth) wearing a superhero cape and reflexively blocking harmful substances, like a vigilant guard. This symbolizes the protective nature of these reflexes.
  3. Akinesia: Visualize a kinetic sculpture that’s suddenly frozen, representing the inability to initiate movement. This frozen sculpture (akin to “Akinesia”) in a park setting reminds you of muscle rigidity and movement issues.
  4. Allocortex: Imagine an alligator named “Cortex” in a library with thinner books than usual, symbolizing the fewer layers of the allocortex. “Alligator Cortex” will help you recall the term Allocortex.
  5. Allodynia: Picture an alley where soft things like feathers cause discomfort to passersby, symbolizing pain from normally non-painful stimuli. This alley scene (similar to “Allodynia”) represents the condition’s unusual pain response.
  6. Alveus: Envision an albatross (sounds like “Alveus”) flying over the hippocampus of a whale, representing the alveus’s role in hippocampal connections.
  7. Alzheimer’s Disease: Imagine an old timer’s clock (resembling “Alzheimer’s”) slowly losing its numbers, symbolizing the progressive memory loss associated with the disease.
  8. Cholinergic Neurons in Alzheimer’s Disease: Picture a coal miner (sounds like “cholinergic”) in the old timer’s clock, disappearing, representing the loss of cholinergic neurons in Alzheimer’s.
  9. Early Neurological Signs in Alzheimer’s Disease: Think of a neon sign flickering in the old timer’s clock, with symbols of confusion and forgetfulness, representing early symptoms of Alzheimer’s.
  10. Amacrine Cells: Visualize a macaroni sculpture (similar to “Amacrine”) in an art gallery, intricately connected, symbolizing the role of amacrine cells in visual information processing.
  11. Amino Acids: Imagine a mine filled with glowing ores shaped like acids, representing amino acids as the building blocks (mines) of proteins.
  12. Amnesia: Picture an amnesiac mime (sounds like “Amnesia”) trying to recall his performance in a street scene, symbolizing memory loss.
  13. Amygdala: Think of an almond (sounds like “Amygdala”) in a brain-shaped garden, controlling the flow of emotions like a gardener manages plants, representing the amygdala’s role in emotional processing and memory.
