Science@IMSA – Tuesday 6/20 – Human Neurophysiology and Crayfish Dissection

Today students performed a dissection of a live (anesthetized) crayfish, highlighting all of its significant sensory structures. They also did a histology of its nervous tissue to examine the neural network.  In the other section of the course students examined reaction and reflex variation to auditory and visual reflexes (using eye charts and tuning forks) as well as tactile reflexes.
