77 kids from New Haven schools came to Yale today to hear about science at our Sensory Physiology Club!
Today’s topic was the sense of touch. Thanks to Viktor, Sarah, Evan and Jon for making it possible!
Viktor’s lecture on the sense of touch from our 5-day course on sensory physiology for mid- and high-school students.
We have launched the Sensory Physiology Club – a new initiative from the Slav and Elena Labs to promote education among the school kids of the Grater New Haven area. This summer, we are proud to be a part of the Yale SCHOLAR program.
Willem is trying to convince the schoolkids that being a graduate student in the Slav and Elena Labs is the best thing ever.
Evan talks brains.
Elena and Willem are totally into Evan’s lecture.
Evan discovers his sensitivity threshold in the two-point discrimination test. Maggie operates the caliper.

Special thanks to Lynda Blancato and Maria Parente for making this possible!.
