Connecting Concepts: Animal Physiology/Homeostasis 2: Ben's Bad Day: The Inside Story
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 neurotransmitters or hormones based on properties such as receptor specificity and delivery to target organs.

Part two of three excellent interactive exercises that investigate the concept of homeostasis. Students are required to draw conclusions from information and data provided. This is a very difficult concept for students. Very well organized and well written. Uses "typical" events in a student's day from part one but goes deeper into the causes. Used in my classes.
