Great Nerve Transmission Website
The Nobel Prize website has a fantastic animated explanation about how nerve signals work. Click on the link to go step-by step through nerve anatomy, action potentials, and neurotransmitters. If you don't "get it" in class or when you read the book, this site may be just the thing you need to help you understand. Why do they have it on the Nobel Prize site? Because the people who figure out how these things work get Nobel Prizes in medicine.
