Drugs at a Mouse Party

Go to my neuroscience wiki page on drugs located here:


Complete the “lesson” links to learn how a neuron works, what happens at the synapse and how drugs affect this.  As an added bonus, the “Mouse Party” activity is pretty funny 🙂

Use the information from the site to create a table in a Google Spreadsheet with the following information: drug name, method of intake, how the drug affects the neurons in the brain.  For example…  Cocaine, snort, inject or smoke, blocks dopamine reuptake receptors thus prolonging the effect of dopamine. (but yours will be in a nice, neat table format)

Share that Google Spreadsheet with my tfleetwood charterschool email address.
