3D Molecular Designs. Engage your classroom with hands-on modeling of neuronal communication. Students can use this kit's 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 postsynaptic neuron; and much more.

3D Molecular Designs. Engage your classroom with hands-on modeling of neuronal communication. Students can use the colorful foam pieces in the Synapse Construction Kit© 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 postsynaptic neuron
  • Model cholinergic, dopaminergic, and GABAergic synapses
  • Compare and contrast metabotropic and ionotropic receptors
  • Analyze the impact of various substances such as nicotine, cocaine, sarin gas, and propofol on neuronal signaling
  • And much more

Go to the 3D Molecular Designs website for additional resources: PDFs of Teacher Notes (an activity guide) to help you consider different ways to use the kit materials and additional guides to supplement or reinforce concepts presented in the classroom.
