Although I had some serious dislikes about the scientific content of
some of their animations, (neurotransmitters going into the post-synaptic
cell via ion channels) the animations were outstanding.  The series
would clearly be accessible for introductory level teaching and would
appeal to a lot fo students.  It was a very interesting series and will
be an interesting one to watch in 10-20 years as we gain more knowledge.
I give the graphics an A, the content a C.  Neurotransmitters 'bonding'
to receptors??  Come on, David.
