    The Leaky Neuron: Understanding synaptic integration using an analogy involving leaky cups

    Learning Objectives
    Students will able to:
    • compare and contrast spatial and temporal summation in terms of the number of presynaptic events and the timing of these events
    • predict the relative contribution to reaching threshold and firing an action potential as a function of distance from the axon hillock
    • predict how the frequency of incoming presynaptic action potentials effects the success of temporal summation of resultant postsynaptic potentials
  • Picture of three popular graphic memoirs, which we used in our class.

    Using Comics to Make Science Come Alive

    Learning Objectives
    Students will
    • be motivated to learn science related to specific socio-scientific issues.
    • learn science that applies to specific socio-scientific issues.
