Tides - by StudyJams
Tides are the rise and fall of the Earth's seas and oceans, and they are caused by the pull of gravity from the sun and moon.

Computer Simulations of Basic Neuronal Function
This laboratory utilizes two user-friendly computer programs from Neurosim (Biosoft, Cambridge, U.K.) that demonstrate various aspects of electrophysiological functions of neurons without sacrificing experimental animals. One program simulates passive conduction in a long length of axon while the second program simulates the Hodgkin-Huxley equations for the production of an action potential. While these programs allow students to try experimental manipulations that parallel those done in real el
