Welcome to Backyard Brains
The brain is complex, but extremely fascinating. We need more people interested in studying the brain because 20% of the world will have a neurological disorder... and there are no cures! To study the brain, you typically have to be a graduate student at a major university. Not any more! Backyard Brains enables everyone to be a neuroscientist! We provide affordable neuroscience experiment kits for students of all ages to learn (hands-on) about electrophysiology. Now everyone from schoolchildren to grad students and every grade in between can experiment with similar tools used by real neuroscientists worldwide! By following a few simple steps, everyone can experience first-hand how the brain communicates with our senses, memories, hopes, and desires.
Join a Make-Your-Own SpikerBox Workshops Worldwide!
If you are interested in learning more about hands-on Neuroscience and Engineering. You are in luck! We are hosting DIY SpikerBox Make-and-Take Workshop in the weeks to come in cities all around the world. For each workshop, students will make their own SpikerBox, then conduct neuroscience experiments with the equipment they made!
