Are you interested in how your brain works? How your five senses really sense? Have you ever wondered what the spikes of neurons really look like? Do you like doing experiments? Well, you’re in luck! Backyard Brains is collaborating with TheLab to conduct a workshop just for you!
The goal of this workshop is to introduce you to nerve physiology, electronics, and help you make a device to study the nervous system. You will measure the electrical signals produced by real nerve cells and muscles, with a device you make yourself. All of the necessary tools for construction will be provided. All participants will receive instruction on soldering, no experience necessary. Everyone will take home a working device. You will leave with your own neuron or muscle amplifier (you choose!).
