Howard Hughes Medical Institute: The Virtual Neurophysiology Lab

Looking to enhance your curriculum with a dissection but you don’t have the resources or the time to do a full dissection? This interactive online dissection of a leech allows students to explore the electrical activity of nerve cells. The website contains background information, a scientific notebook, atlas, glossary, and equipment list. Students can begin their lab by learning more about the leech and their nervous system as well as the electrical equipment used to explore nerve cells.
