Useful websites: • “Eye” is an animation showing how the eye functions, including the rod cells. • “Synapse” is a simplified model of a synaptic gap, with or without drugs. • “Action Potential” is a detailed interactive animation that explains how ion channels and active transport are involved in sending neural signals. • “Hearing” explains the functions of the ear. • “Sense of Taste” explains how taste buds on the tongue function. • “Sense of Smell” explains how sensory receptors in the nose work, and what smells have to do with emotion. • “Touch Receptors” is an animation that explains how our sense of touch works....
