Grades 9 and up. Engage your classroom with hands-on modeling of neuronal communication with the Synapse Construction kit. Students can use the colorful foam pieces to:

  • Discover how the resting potential of a neuron is established
  • Demonstrate the propagation of an action potential down an axon
  • Simulate the action of the sodium-potassium pump in resetting the resting potential
  • Explore the effects of neurotransmitters acetylcholine, dopamine, and GABA on a post-synaptic neuron
  • Model cholinergic, dopaminergic, and GABAergic synapses
  • Compare and contrast metabotropic and ionontropic receptors
  • Analyze the impact of various substances such as nicotine, cocaine, sarin gas, and propofol on neuronal signaling

NOTE: Only available in the U.S.
