Regenerobot and the Robot Science Fair In this movie, the robot Regenerobot makes a project about tissue engineering of the spinal cord. Regenerobot learns about the nervous tissue, the neurons and the challenges the body faces in healing this extraordinary tissue!

Specs

Ages Middle School and up
Duration 15 min
Key topics spinal cord, stem cells, tissue engineering, scaffold, regenerative medicine


Synapse

How Do Messages Travel Through The Body? Messages or signals are passed between special cells called neurons. The signals travel electrically down the axon inside a neuron or chemically across the space between neurons - the synapse. This means that the signal actually changes in nature all the time!

Neural Field

Observe the signals passing through a single neuron and then travelling through the spinal cord - where the longest neurons can be found!
