Neurotransmitters Activity: Get to the Know the Neurotransmitters!
Lecture can be so dry on these guys. Make this class period stand out with lively skits or stories. Be sure your students recall the different functions.
THE NEUROTRANSMITTERS ARE HARD TO REMEMBER BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY OF THEM AND EACH HAVE THEIR OWN FUNCTIONS. HOWEVER, THEY PLAY A CRITICAL ROLE IN OUR BODIES. TO SLEEP, TO MOVING, TO HUNGER AND AGGRESSION, NEUROTRANSMITTERS ARE CHEMICAL MESSENGERS INVOLVED IN EVERY SECOND OF OUR LIVES.
