Nerve Physiology & Pharmacology

Producer: Shavit, Dr. Gabriel

Video recordings of experiments explaining and demonstrating the effects of neurotransmitters and their antagonists on the autonomous system and the sympathetic system. The experiments illustrate the effects on the cat’s nictitating membrane and the isolated heart and gut of a rat, and the output of various induced conditions in a tachograph. Clinical pictures of the human eye pupil after exposures to the substances discussed further demonstrate these effects. The film was intentionally produced without background narration, since it was demonstrated that students pay more attention when the explanation is given by the teacher, and not the video, but it does have text labels.
