Project
Effects of Drugs…
This project is intended to increase knowledge on how drugs affect the synapses between neurons in the brain. It will also help with the understanding of how the brain becomes dependant on a particular drug and how that drug affects both the brain and the body. You may use this mouse party internet lab to help with this assignment: https://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/addiction/mouse/
Assignment:
Your goal is to design a Fact Sheet / Pamphlet/ Brochure that describes a particular drug and demonstrates its effect on the brain and body. You can design this on google docs or Microsoft Word. The project must include:
A description of the drug & picture of the drug.
A diagram showing how the drug affects a synapse. Include how the drug affects the release/re-uptake of natural neurotransmitters (and what those natural neurotransmitters usually do – including whether they are excitatory or inhibitory). You must draw this, no just copy/pasting a picture from the internet.
An explanation on how the drug causes dependency.
How the drug affects different parts of the brain and the body.
Treatments for the drugs effects.
Proper APA References (see the helpful guide at: http://www.library.ualberta.ca/uploads/augustana/apa_qg_6th_edition_February2010_2.pdf )
What else do you need to know?
Your mark will be based on effort, detail and overall presentation.
It will be worth a total of 25 marks for your outcome mark and then a science skills mark.
You may work alone or with a partner
