Program name: Bioshock! Neuroscience for Everyone
Program category: Health & Fitness- Other
Nature- Other
Science
Program length: 1 Hour
Audience level: All ages
Audience size: Any
Program description: This course is taught with a lecture and lab component. During lecture, students learn about the organization of the nervous system, synaptic transmission, neurotransmitters, and ionic basis for action potentials. These are basic foundations for the science of neurophysiology, which we will be practicing using hands on methods. The lab component involves recording action potentials in real time from an insect, and analysis of the recording to interpret results. Robotic control of an insect using neural circuits and a cell phone usually interest the most hard core bored students! The goal of the class is to interest students in neural circuits and neuroscience!
