Neurotransmitters Contain Chemicals
Human body systems learners play a card game, "Locks & Keys" in order to learn that neurotransmitters carry a message from one neuron to another by fitting into a receptor site on the receiving nerve cell. While this activity can stand alone as a lesson, it is part of a larger series of lessons on the chemistry of the brain.

Crossing the Synaptic Gap
As part of a unit on the chemistry of the brain, thinkers learn how chemicals work to transmit messages between individual neurons and how controlled substances impact the synaptic cleft. They do so by playing a dice-and-card game in which the numbers that appear on the dice represent the number of incoming signals and the number of signals inhibited by drugs.
