Sheep Brain Dissection

Saturday, October 18: 1:00 - 4:00. Giltner Hall (Click building name for map)

How to Build a Nervous System: Students will develop a concept of information flow from sensory input to motor output (e.g., seeing to motor action). They will learn about the building blocks of nervous system (namely neurons and glia and their main jobs) and learn basic facts about what makes a neuron a neuron.

Sheep Brain Dissection: Students will have an opportunity to dissect a real sheep brain with the guidance of MSU Neuroscience Program students and faculty. The session aims to help familiarize Brain Bee at MSU participants with basic neuroanatomy.

Only registered Brain Bee at MSU competitors can participate.

A link to the registration page will be emailed to registered Brain Bee at MSU students on October 8. Not registered for the competition? Register Now!
