Antigen Presentation: T and B Cell Differentiation
By Carol Parent-Paulson
This learning object demonstrates the process by which antigens are identified, processed, and presented to mediators of the cellular immune system.
Anatomical Terminology: Relative Position
In this interactive learning activity, learners review the terms used to describe relative position of body parts in order to have a common set of words to describe their position.
Virus Particles: Structure and Function
By Kristine Snow
In this learning activity you'll assembles parts of a virus and match virus terms and descriptions.
Parasite Matching Exercises
Learners match the names of parasitic organisms to the diseases they cause and the modes of transmission.
Virus Matching Exercises
Learners complete two exercises. In the first quiz, they divide viruses into two categories: RNA and DNA. They later match each virus with the disease it causes.
The Unipolar and Multipolar Neurons
Learners examine the location, structure, and function of the unipolar and multipolar neurons.
Physiological Events at the Neural Synapse
In this learning activity you'll review information on the neural synapse.
This animated object illustrates the events leading to the migration of phagocytes into areas of tissue damage and/or bacterial presence. Learners view bacterial cell phagocytosis, its subsequent enzymatic digestion, and exocytosis.
The Organization of the Human Body: Body Cavities
In this interactive object, learners examine the locations of major body cavities and their protective membranes. A drag-and-drop exercise completes the activity.
The Corticospinal Tracts
In this animated object, learners examine the major descending tracts of the nervous system. A matching exercise completes the activity.
In this animated object, the learner examines 17 types of joint movement.
The Upper and Lower Motor Neurons
In this animated object, learners examine the function and location of the motor neurons and the damage that can result when they are injured.
