Event description

Description

Ages 10-13, chaperone required

Different parts of the brain control each of our five senses - sight, touch, hearing, taste and smell. Neuroscientists at places like Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory study how the brain receives sensory information and then signals the body to respond. Join us to observe several fundamental neuroscience concepts by exploring your own senses, including how our brains understand (and can be tricked!) by sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch.

Participants will:

  • taste some surprising substances (all safe of course!);
  • hear auditory illusions and see optical illusions;
  • smell various concentrations of familiar substances;
  • feel how different parts of the body respond to different touch stimuli.
