Make a Mad, Mad, Mad Neuron

Make a Mad, Mad, Mad Neuron

The reward pathway is accountable for driving our feelings of motivation, reward and behavior. In this interactive activity, you will train with Dr. Dendristein and build your own monster neural pathway. You can refer to the computer in the laboratory to review over the anatomy of a neuron while you construct your own monster neuron. While placing each part of the monster neuron on the operating table, you will be asked a series of questions pertaining to each part of the neuron. Once you have constructed the two neurons, you will be able to see the neural pathway in motion.
