McGrew Leads Elementary School Students in Dissection Activities

mcgrewDr. Lori McGrew, professor of neuroscience, visited the encore class at Glenview Elementary School in Nashville on Monday, March 7.  Because the students have been studying neuroscience, McGrew attended the class and brought sheep brains for students to dissect.

McGrew led a conversation about how scientists use brains from animals to learn more about what happens in people and explained the research she does with zebrafish. McGrew said the students were very enthusiastic and asked great questions during her presentation.
