Looking for lively visuals to help students understand key processes in biochemistry, physiology, genetics, or cell biology? Check out this collection from North Harris College in Houston, Texas, which links to more than 100 teaching animations that bring to life everything from cancer formation to muscle contraction. Students can follow the movement of ions into and out of a neuron during an action potential, for example, or learn the difference between peptide hormones, which fasten to receptors on a cell's surface, and steroid hormones, which infiltrate the nucleus.
