Spikes Coming to Oaxaca for the first Mexican Maker Faire

If you are nearby Oaxaca this coming weekend (March 22-23), we will be at the Maker Faire demonstrating neuroscience and also running Make and Take Workshops.  ¡Vamos a la tierra de Nahuatl y Chapulines! ¡Vengan ustedes para ver las espigas de neuronas y músculos!


Manuscript Published on Earthworm Conduction Velocity Experiments

Over the past year, we have worked on writing up our earthworm conduction velocity experiments for formal scientific publication. After one round of peer-review, we are pleased to announce the paper is now out! It is in the journal Advances in Physiology Education, published by one of our favorite organizations, the American Physiology Society. Read on intrepid readers!

We continue striving on in our earthworm investigations. For example, we recently released a temperature experiment on our website, and we are working on some nerve stretching experiments as well as second spike facilitation. Finally, we thank Professor Jeff Wilson of Albion College for collaborating with us on this work.
