DIY Neuroscience: Build Your Own SpikerBox
Presented by Bergen McMurray, HiveBio Co-founder and CEO

"The brain is complex, but extremely fascinating. We need more people interested in studying the brain because 20% of the world will have a neurological disorder... and there are no cures! To study the brain, you typically have to be a graduate student at a major university. Not any more! Backyard Brains enables everyone to be a neuroscientist! We provide affordable neuroscience experiment kits for students of all ages to learn (hands-on) about electrophysiology. Now everyone from schoolchildren to grad students and every grade in between can experiment with similar tools used by real neuroscientists worldwide! By following a few simple steps, everyone can experience first-hand how the brain communicates with our senses, memories, hopes, and desires."

- Backyard Brains (a DIY Neuroscience organization located in Ann Arbor Michigan)

If you're interested in neuroscience and/or electronics, then this is the class for you! Together well each be building our own SpikerBoxes from Backyard Brains. SpikerBoxes monitor the action potential (electric activity) of neurons. With just your SpikerBox and a smartphone or computer, you'll be able to see and hear the electrical activity of neurons in real time!

All materials are provided. This class requires some soldering, but don't worry if you have no experience. The HiveBio team will be there to help you out. We will need to download the Backyard Brains app to view our data. To ensure that everyone gets their own SpikerBox ($50 SpikerBox included in ticket price), registration closes May 30th.

Please check out the Backyard Brains website for more information about their Spikerboxes!

This class is recommended for students ages 12 and up.
