Presentation Overview


-You will be assigned a neurotransmitter
-You will then create a formal oral presentation to include the following detail:

a. In what part of the nervous system does the neurotransmitter mostly work?
b. Outline the role the neurotransmitter plays.
c. Explain the effects of the neurotransmitter on behavior.
d. What affects are there when there is too much or too little of the neurotransmitter?
e. What drugs and/or treatments are used when there is a problem related to the neurotransmitter?

You will give your presentation live in class; after, you will create a VoiceThread of the same presentation and post it on this page.
