Firing on all Synapses!

Starting with prenatal development, students will learn the structures and functions of the brain – one of the largest and most complex organs in the human body.  They will investigate how neurons create connections, and how those synapses change during learning.  Hands-on learning activities will include brain dissection, peripheral nerve testing, brain plasticity, and mirror neurons.  Students will also study how nutrition can improve brain health and function, and learn about diseases, headaches, sleep, autism, neurotransmitters, and depression.
