Overall, this site is outstanding. One of my students referred me to it and I have used in as a Learning Object in my classroom ever since. My students have found it helpful at looking at the synaptic interactions as well.

Technical Remarks:

Flash required but the LO is very smooth and well designed
Time spent reviewing site: 2 hours
Used in course
