In this activity about the baroreceptor reflex (BR) arc (page 123 of the PDF), learners discover the importance of maintaining adequate arterial blood pressure through a role playing exercise. This activity will model how the brain processes information and sends out signals to the heart and arteries. Learners can also consider how this affects astronauts in the microgravity environment of space. The lesson guide, part of NASA's "The Brain in Space: A Teacher's Guide with Activities for Neuroscience," includes background information and evaluation strategies. Note: this activity requires 9 learners per group. (less)

The neuroscience sequence is foundational in nature and stresses the organizational principles and structure/function relationships in the central nervous system. The course emphasizes the relationship between the gross organization of the Central Nervous System (CNS), its subdivision into specialized regions and the corresponding perceptions of sensory information and the nervous system control of behavior. The cell biology of the neuron, neurotransmitter systems and neuronal injury and repair are also emphasized. (less)

In this activity, learners discover a brain process called habituation. Learners try to touch the tips of their socks with their eyes closed, and discover it is easier to do immediately after they put on their on socks as opposed to after completing an activity that requires a lot of attention. Use this activity to talk about how the brain works. (less)

In this activity, learners work together to create a life-sized drawing of the human nervous system. In doing so, learners will discover more about how the brain uses neurons to send messages, and how it coordinates with the muscles in the body. This activity can be conducted outside using chalk on the sidewalk. (less)

Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! The brain is made up of two halves, the hemispheres. These hemispheres are united to one another through a system consisting of millions of nerve fibers. Therefore, each hemisphere is continually informed about what is happening in the other. What happens if the connection is broken? (less)

In this activity about light and reflection, learners discover that what you see is often affected by what you expect to see. Learners hold on to a device consisting of two mirrors glued back to back to each other with a dowel handle on either side. While looking at one side of the mirror, learners move one hand on the other side of the mirror. They will be surprised as their brain is fooled into thinking that the image it sees in the mirror is actually their other hand. Learners can participate in assembling the mirror device or use a pre-assembled one. This resource also includes a simpler version of this activity in the "etcetera" section at the bottom of the guide. (less)

The NF2 gene produces a protein, called merlin, in the schwann cells that wrap around the axons of nerve cells. Merlin is a tumor suppressor protein, involved in regulation of the cell's activities. If the merlin protein is mutated, the schwann cells can change shape and reproduce at an unusual rate. This uncontrolled growth can lead to tumors around nerves in the ear and central nervous system.

In this activity, learners investigate color vision as well as plan and conduct their own experiments. In "CLASS EXPERIMENT," learners discover that afterimages occur because of properties of cells in the retina and because of the way nerve pathways carry color information to the brain. They learn basic facts about photoreceptors, nerve connections, and opponent colors. In "TRY YOUR OWN EXPERIMENT," learners design experiments, investigating, for example, how skillful people are at distinguishing gradations of color and how color helps us discern objects in a scene. This lesson plan includes background information and guides for educators and learners. (less)

In this activity, learners explore their eye pupils and how they change. Learners use a magnifying glass, mirror, and flashlight to observe how their pupil changes size in response to changes in lighting. Learners also experiment to determine how light shining in one eye affects the size of the pupil in their other eye. This resource guide includes background information about pupils and why they change as well as information related to emotional stimuli, involuntary reflexes, and photography. (less)
