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.

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