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.

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.
