Students dive deep inside Ben, a fellow student, to learn how messenger molecules of the nervous and endocrine system were working to carry signals throughout Ben’s body to restore his homeostasis in the previous topic. Students 1) step through animations of signaling between nervous and endocrine systems and target organs, learning which signals are fast and which are slow; 2) label events in a signal relay between the brain, pituitary gland, and kidney; 3) classify descriptions of...
