Product Details

The Neuron SpikerBox comes with everything you need to get started learning neuroscience. You only need to supply time, curiosity, and an invertebrate (cricket, earthworm, or cockroach) which you can order from us or pick up in a local pet store. Once you have an invertebrate, follow your getting started guide and our online experiments, and soon you will be listening to the sweet beautiful sound of spikes. You can even take it a step further, by using our Smartphone Cable to plug your SpikerBox into your smartphone or tablet to look at the neurons firing in real time. All of our apps and software are free to download and use. What will you discover? Order today and find out!
