BioQUEST, a set of Macintosh teaching tools for Biology, contains a 
module on Neurophysiology, called MacAxon.

You can find a demo of this BioQUEST software on Iubio Archive.  It is 
commercial software; I have no financial connection with this, I haven't
even seen the full commercial release, just the demo.

To get the demo, 
	 ftp iubio.bio.indiana.edu

BioQUEST = Quality Undergraduate Educational Simulations and Tools in 

BioQUEST represents a major effort to produce an "anthology" of high 
quality computer-based materials for teaching that complement RwetS and 
field laboratories.

Project BioQUEST is developing an introductory biology course composed 
of modules, integrated with a theme of evolutionary reasoning which 
examines familiar, classical fields of biology as well as the less 
familiar, contemporary areas. ...
The central goal of Project BioQUEST is to demonstrate the generality of 
content-based problem solving as an approach to learning biology. ...
The Project is funded by the Annenberg/CPB Project, Apple Computer 
Corporation, and the Foundation for Microbiology. Project sponsors ...
published. Additional software, general tools (like word processors) and 
biology research tools will be used in the package. The student text, 
HyperCard stacks, and software developed by the project will be commercially
