Drugs and Neurotransmitters January 29, 2007

Posted by Johan in Neuroscience, Psychopharmacology.

Omnibrain has a post linking to a flash demo on the way various drugs affect neurotransmitter function in the brain: Mouse Party.

Yes, it features mice on drugs. Animated mice on drugs. It’s a little hard to believe that this was actually made at a University, but there you go. As someone who grew up in a time when science education equalled 20-year-old reel-to-reels made by Solfilm (anyone who went to primary school in Sweden will know what I’m talking about), this stuff is pretty impressive.

If you like Mouse Party, check out a more technical flash demo of neurotransmitter functioning and drug use.
