Hand-On Demo: Cockroach Neuroscience
AgesAdults & kids together
Have you heard about the cool neurobiology research at the U-M? Join us to learn about bug brains and witness neuroscience in action! Start by exploring a neuron and learn how billions of them work together to help your brain communicate with your body. Discover how they send signals via electricity and then witness this first-hand by “bioamplifying” nerve impulses from cockroaches.
Hands-on demonstrations are 20-30 minute interactive programs on the 2nd floor of the Museum. They include both brief presentations highlighting University research and engaging hands-on activities, and are suitable for adults and children ages 5 and up.
