BioKnowledgy Presentation on 6.5 Neurons and synapses from Chris Paine

6.5 Neurons & Synapses notes to complete (created by Mrs Green).

IB Bio Topic 6.5 Pt A Neurons a 4m video lesson and IB Bio Topic 6.5 Pt B Neurons another 4m video lesson, from roxprice.

In Crash Course Biology #26 – The Nervous System, Hank begins a series of videos on organ systems with a look at the nervous system and all of the things that it is responsible for in the body.

Fantastic animated tutorials from McGraw Hill Education – the Nerve Impulse, Action Potential propagation in unmyelinated axons, Voltage-gated channels &  the action potential, Sodium-Potassium exchange pump,  how it works & the sodium channel involved in nerve transmission. Also transmission across a synapse

From Sinauer Associates we have an animated, narrated tutorial on Reflex Arcs which also includes a quiz and here are animated, narrated tutorials on the synapse and action potentials.
