Hi all,
I’ve used/adapted a few of the activities from the Neuroscience Laboratory and Classroom Activities book from 1996 that Judy mentions below for an undergraduate non-majors NS course.  As per Bill’s request, you will find the pdf attached to this email. Maybe Bob Calin-Jageman can put on the FUN website.
Best,
Kristen

    Judy,

    I'm going to beg you to make a PDF of these classroom activities and post
    it online. Perhaps we can put a link on the FUN website. It sounds like a
    wonderful resource and one that should be broadly distributed.

    >>
    >> I have forwarded your email to Dr. Steven Zottoli who organized a Grass
    >> Workshop one year ago that brought together a group of neuroscientists from

    >> community.  I have asked him if anyone attending that workshop was from the
    >> Chicago area.  I am from Texas so a bit of a stretch but you can do some
    >> meaningful experiments that are cheaper using earthworm and hydra.  There
    >> may be some drosophila and c.elegans projects but these would require, most
    >> likely, some husbandry and more animal care.  Here is a link to some
    >> earthworm materials from my academic grandfather, who has passed away but
    >> his website is kept up for exactly this purpose:
