6.5 Neurons & Synapses

Thanks again Mr Taylor (of iBiology) for this powerpoint from the OLD syllabus. 

From Sinauer Associates we have an animated, narrated tutorial on Reflex Arcs which also includes a quiz and here are animated, narrated tutorials on the synapse and action potentials.

Click on ‘Signal Transduction’ to see an Interactive Animation from Wiley on how hormones work & Cholera (& lots more that you don’t need to know).

An animated tutorial from McGraw Hill Education on blood sugar regulation in diabetics. and here is ‘What does the Pancreas do?’ (from Emma Bryce & TED-Ed):

In Crash Course Biology #26 – The Nervous System, Hank begins a series of videos on organ systems with a look at the nervous system and all of the things that it is responsible for in the body. In #33 – Great Glands: Your Endocrine System, Hank fills us in on the endocrine system.

Skoool gives you a lesson, including progress questions, for each Biology topic but you’ll need sound on for it. GCSE Bitesize has revision pages (that take you through the topic), a test and an activity.

An excellent powerpoint that covers it all:
