Advanced and introductory experiments designed to teach students about central and peripheral nerve function, brain activity using non-invasive approaches (EEG and visually evoked potentials), and intracellular and extracellular action potentials.
This lesson is designed to be used before the Lab. Questions have been set to allow multiple attempts for formative assessment. However, it is very simple to change the setting so that students may make only one attempt and their answers can be graded.
Independent learning (30 minutes)
This lesson includes a Challenge page to get the learners thinking about the main point of each exercise. Each exercise has an activity and an analysis page with questions to check their understanding. These check your understanding questions allow single attempts.
