WORKSHOP - Underwater Sensation
Pupils will perform comparative studies in the zebrafish larvae at different developmental stages as well as getting an insight into various aspects of neuroscience performing simple behavioural experiments. Thus, it will be possible to demonstrate how mechanosensory information is perceived, processed within a neuronal network and results in a change of animal behaviour. Interactive activities and the build-up of a simple electronic circuit will enable the pupils to understand the signal transduction within a neuron.
I loved the experiments with the zebrafish and the playful presentation of a nerve cell. It was very exciting and interesting. pupil, grade 8
I didn't know about the fast development of a zebrafish and now I also know how a neuron is functioning. pupil, grade 8
