Virtual Neuroscience Lab #1: Cocaine Study

DESCRIPTION OF THE COCAINE LAB
Cocaine Lab ImageIn this virtual laboratory, students become neurobiologists and conduct a study on the effects of cocaine on dopamine levels in the brain which in turn effects the behavior of the rats. The data shows that the brain is not effected only when cocaine is in the bloodstream, but it is also effected at other, rather surprising times that may give a clue as to why cocaine addiction is so difficult to beat!
