Students at The Episcopal School of Dallas are already busy in AP Psychology learning about the nervous system. They made neurons (presynaptic and postsynaptic) out of candy yesterday to better understand the parts of a neuron. They were to use the following parts and label them with their partner:

  • Axon: Twizzler Pull Aparts
  • Dendrites: Sour Gummy Worms
  • Soma (Cell Body and Nucleus): Gummy Peachy Ring (Cell Body) and Lemonhead (Nucleus) 
  • Terminal Buttons: Skittles or M&Ms 
  • Myelin Sheath: Marshmallows
  • Vesicles: JujyFruits
  • Neurotransmitters: Nerds
  • Synaptic Cleft or Gap: Sour Punch Bites

Great work, Eagles!
