Summary

The Neurons in Action tutorials are unique CD-ROM-based learning tools that combine text with computer simulations of laboratory experiments in neurophysiology. Using the professional research simulator NEURON, students perform experiments to affect the generation of action potentials, synaptic potentials, and the spread or propagation of voltages within a neuron. Parameters that are under the student's control include neuronal geometry, ion concentrations, ion channel density, degree of myelination, and, for a synapse, its conductance, reversal potential, timecourse, and location on dendrites.

With its novel use of interactive movies, Neurons in Action allows the student to visualize changing voltage patterns not only in time but in space, providing insight into nerve function that is simply not possible with conventional text and figure presentations.

The Neurons in Action tutorials, organized into three levels of difficulty, may be used for beginning as well as advanced students. The Partial Demyelination Tutorial is especially useful for medical students. NeuroLab's simulations can enhance the impact of lectures and conferences where the students can immediately see the effects of parameter changes, channel blocking by toxins, etc. The simulations provide definitive answers to questions raised by students as well as queries posed by the instructor.
