The Unipolar and Multipolar Neurons
Learners examine the location, structure, and function of the unipolar and multipolar neurons.
Transport Processes Requiring ATP
In this animated object, students observe how ATP energy is used to move substances across the cell membrane from an area of lower concentration to an area of higher concentration and when something too large needs to get in or out of a cell.
Muscle Cell Contraction
In this animated activity, learners examine muscle cell contraction and relaxation and consider the role of calcium ions.
The Skeleton: Bones & Joints
By Robert Formanek
In this interactive object, learners review the major parts of the skeletal system by clicking on the correct term as each bone or joint is highlighted on a skeleton.
Passive Transport: Filtration and Facilitated Diffusion
In this animated object, learners examine processes that do not use ATP directly including hydrostatic pressure and facilitated diffusion with carrier proteins.
The Actions of Hormones
In this animated object, learners compare the mode of action of steroids with the action of amino acid-based hormones.
By Wendy Dusek
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine ventilation, external and internal respiration, and gas transport.
