Outreach Education: Making Neuroscience Readily Available for Rural Students and Communities of AlaskaEllison, Ariel (2013)￼WHAT is neuroscience?

Think of the skeletal system and the muscular, nervous, digestive and respiratory systems that make up the human body and keep it running in tip top shape. Now think of the brain, a singular organ of soft nervous tissue that one-handedly controls all of those other systems, including both mental and physical actions. Sounds a bit daunting doesn’t it?
