Students can use the colorful foam pieces in the Synapse Construction Kit© to:
Find information about the contents of your Synapse Construction Kit© and directions for assembling the pieces.
Set up axonal membranes and model neuronal resting potential and action potential.
This activity guide will help you consider different ways you may use these materials. We encourage you to modify these lessons and activities to meet the learning objectives and needs of your specific students.
Have your students model the events of neurotransmission at a cholinergic, dopaminergic and/or GABAergic synapse. Then, model a perturbance in a cholinergic, dopaminergic and/or GABAergic synapse.
Introduce your students to dopaminergic, cholinergic and/or GABAergic neuronal synapses.
