IC Synaptic Transmission

Why just read about a case study when you can experience one?Cogent Educations Interactive Cases provide engaging real world scenarios allowing you to explore a variety of science-based careers and dive into the "molecular" world to solve a real world problem. Each Interactive Case concentrates on one of the most challenging concepts in Biology.In our Interactive Case on Synaptic Transmission, you play the role of a neurologist, where you must help a man who is having trouble standing. The patient has recently noticed small tremors when trying to write.After reviewing your patient's symptoms you will learn the fundamentals of synaptic transmission by exploring an embedded Interactive Guide, which contains simulations and animations to help explain the core concepts of synaptic transmission.Next, youll fly into your patient's brain and start your investigation by collecting and analyzing data from his brain tissue. This will enable you to form & test a hypothesis, and communicate your findings. All along the way, youll be learning key concepts and developing and honing your problem solving skills.Our award-winning Interactive Cases:present key science concepts in the context of engaging real-world scenariosallow you to use critical thinking to practice problem-solving skillsenable you to interact with virtual molecular and cellular worldsalign to Next Generation Science Standards and AASL Standards for the 21st-Century Learner.are research-based and proven to improve learning and problem-solving skills (3-year independent study with 2,300 students)provide a real-time formative assessment tool that enables teachers to differentiate and personalize their instructionare funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Healthcan be completed in approximately 45-90 minutes.allow users anytime, anywhere access, which offers additional time to develop and hone problem-solving skillsYoull never view science the same way again!
