Sinauer Associates Neurons in Action

Neurons in Action (NIA) is a set of interactive tutorials on CD-ROM that are based on the professional simulator NEURON. It is unique in presenting neuronal activity as moving graphed voltages %u2013 "movies" of impulses traveling in space. It is also unique in its approach of leading the student through a series of laboratory experiments where he or she can change parameters and plot the results. Finally, not only can the student plot the voltage, but, more importantly, they can plot the underlying ionic currents and conductances, leading to a true understanding of how signals are generated.
