  • The Science of Fear You know that hair-raising feeling you get when you’re scared? By undergoing a specific physiological response, your body is primed to confront, and hopefully overcome, whatever scary situation you face. View »
  • Human Body: Cardiovascular System Teach the functions of the cardiovascular system with the help of this infographic. View »
  • A Sexual Experience? There are 2 primary forms of reproduction: asexual and sexual. While the majority of the animal kingdom reproduces sexually, many reproduce asexually—and some organisms have the ability to perform both ways! View »
  • Dissections in a Flipped Mastery Classroom Dissection plays an essential role in every anatomy and physiology class. As a teacher, you know it’s valuable, but do your students? Show them the value of performing dissections and give them a learning experience that’s authentic and engaging when you use the flipped-mastery approach. View »
  • Fetal Pig Dissection Pigs are excellent and engaging specimens for studying mammalian anatomy. They exhibit hair, a muscular diaphragm, a 4-chambered heart, and mammary glands. View »
  • From Euglena to Zebra Fish: An Overview of the Diversity of Eyes Did you know scientists study zebrafish to gain further understanding of diseases of the human eye? Why is this? What is the connection between zebrafish and human vision? View »
  • Daphnia Heart Rate In this introductory physiology lab, students determine the heart rate of Daphnia magna and then test the effect of changing temperature on the heart rate. View »
  • Sense of Smell and Olfactory Fatigue In this introductory activity, students use fragrant oils to determine the time of olfactory fatigue for both of their nostrils and examine the link between smell and memories. View »
  • Human Body: Endocrine System Teach the functions of the endocrine system with this infographic. View »
  • From Jellyfish to the Bench: How Green Fluorescent Protein Is Used in Research Students may be familiar with green fluorescent protein (GFP) from classwork or seeing transgenic animals in their local pet store. However, they may not know that it’s also an important research tool. Use this overview to help them discover how scientists use GFP to study many of the major questions in biology. View »
  • Cardiovascular Diseases In this activity, students differentiate normal and diseased cardiovascular anatomy and physiology. View »
  • Ocular Dominance How does the brain process information from both eyes? This short activity introduces the senses, sensation and perception, and evolutionary differences in predator-prey relationships. View »
