Hands-On Demo: Cockroach Neuroscience

Saturday, April 22, 2017
11:00-11:30 AM
Ruthven Museums Building Map
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.
