Miami University Nu Rho Psi Gamma chapter Participated in Talawanda Science Week!
Faculty and graduate student members of Nu Rho Psi led an exciting event for 4th graders from local elementary schools. Students learned about making decisions to move. They discussed the processes starting from visual and auditory cues all the way to muscle movements, saw their own muscle activity on the big screen and learned about functional electrical stimulation and how research leads to improvements in human health. Perhaps most entertaining of all, they controlled their teacher’s arm with their own muscle activity!
