Introduce synapses to your class with our easy to make model!
Synapses are the connections between nerve cells. Nerve signals cross the gap in the synapse as a chemical signal.
Our model teaches the structure of a synapse and shows how they use transmitter molecules to cross the gap.

Perfect for use in class or for distance learning at home!
After making their model, your students use it to look at the structure of a synapse. They then learn how an electrical nerve impulse is converted to a chemical signal and then back to an electrical signal after the synapse.
The model covers: synapse structure, transmitter chemicals (neurotransmitters), the direction of nerve impulse, chemical and electrical signals.
