Next Ladder Meeting: Fun with Brains, Nerves and Reflexes!

So you’ve got sweet moves. How do you make those happen?

Do you have to think through each and every motion, how every single muscle in your arms and legs will twitch and tug when they need to so you don’t fall on your face? No, course not – if you had to use all your brain space even just walking across the room or getting up from a chair, your brain wouldn’t have much time for really anything else at all.

So how does that work – how do you walk or bike or dance or jump when your friend sneaks up and scares you? And how do you do all that while still thinking about the movie you’re catching this weekend or the homework you haven’t gotten done yet or omg why isn’t school out yet? It’s all thanks to your brain, nerves and reflexes, and how they work together, often in ways so subtle you don’t even notice.

So bring your brain (and a friend!) and join us for the next Ladder meeting on May 11th for Fun with Brains, Nerves and Reflexes! We’ll learn from some of our Medical Scholars how the nervous system works and ways of checking the function (and sometimes dysfunction) of our brains, nerves and reflexes!

See you at the  UROC building (2001 Plymouth Ave N, Minneapolis) on Saturday May 11th at 12:30pm (lunch will be provided!). The UROC building is reachable by Metro Transit bus routes 19, 32 & 7.
