Beginning Neurobiology: Sheep Brain Dissection
HHiveBio co-founder Bergen McMurray and Lawrence Own, PhD, explore the basics of neurobiology including neuronal structure, action potentials, and functional areas of the brain. This exploration includes the dissection of preserved sheep brains to explore some of the macro-structures of the brain. This class is great for those who have an interest in neuroscience, or are looking for some hands-on lab experience.
Students under 18 are welcome, but they must have a parent present. Parents, we won't order a brain for you unless you register as well. Brains are preserved in Carosafe, an odorless fluid designed to minimize the unpleasant odor of formaldehyde. Students will used razor blades to open up the brain, so please consider these safety issues before registering a child.
In order to acquire the materials for this class, pre-registration is required.
Please contact email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns about this class.
