Drugs and the Brain

Drugs and the Brain

This site provides great animations in a tutorial format. The Learning Object (LO) is a great teaching tool because it gives a comprehensive view of drug interactions in the brain.  It shows the information in an organized way to help facilitate learning.  It has animations that go along with text and the user can select from 15 different languages.  The user can easily choose which drug they want to learn about, and go at the pace that is best for them.  This LO is also good for teaching about how the brain works because there is a comparison between the brain with and without drugs.
