Why just read about a case study when you can experience one?
Cogent Educations Interactive Cases provide engaging real world scenarios allowing you to explore a variety of science-based careers and dive into the "molecular" world to solve a real world problem. Each Interactive Cases concentrates on one of the most challenging concepts in Biology.
In our Interactive Case on Membrane Potential, you play the role of a nurse at a university health facility, where you must help a student who stayed up 18 hours studying for finals. The patient drank lots of energy drinks and coffee, and is now suffering from muscle weakness and having trouble walking.
After reviewing your patient's symptoms you will learn the fundamentals of membrane potential by exploring an embedded Interactive Guide, which contains simulations and animations to help explain the core concepts of membrane potential.
Next, youll fly into your patient's spinal column and start your investigation by collecting and analyzing data from her neurons. This will enable you to form & test a hypothesis, and communicate your findings. All along the way, youll be learning key concepts and developing and honing your problem solving skills.
