Build a functioning synapse so that Neuron 1 can signal to Neuron 2
The game board features Neuron 1 & Neuron 2, and the Signal card deck includes proteins and molecules you will need to create your synapse. Both neurons have all necessary organelles and a phospholipid membrane. But they need you to fill the blank boxes with game cards to give both neurons the structure they need to send a signal!
The game includes the Signal game board, 49 Signal cards (featuring relevant proteins & molecules) and 15 Info cards (providing short descriptions of all 15 Signal card types).
Perfect for undergraduate neuroscience learning! Use it in 100-200 level courses to help students learn the concepts & in 300-400 level courses as a review exercise. Or hold back the Info cards and make it an assessment! Also useful in high school classrooms & for outreach events!
Comments from 200-level undergraduate students at UNC Asheville who played Signal as an assessment activity in Spring 2022:
Signal was created & designed by Dr. Angel Kaur, Associate Professor of Neuroscience at UNC Asheville. Dr. Kaur has published and presented on game-based learning in the neuroscience classroom.
The first edition of this game is also available as a digital interactive. You can also share this link with students to allow them to use the game as a study tool!
Learn more about Signal in a peer-reviewed publication in the Journal of Undergraduate Neuroscience Education.
