Are You Smarter than a Worm? (Operant Conditioning in C. elegans ) Day 2

Unit 9: Learning, Memory and Biological Clocks
Lesson 5 of 6

Objective: Students will precisely follow a multi-step procedure that will lead to the collection, analysis and interpretation of data on operant conditioning in C. elegans to better understand human behavioral systems.

Big Idea: C elegans can be used as animal models to predict human learning behaviors as there are many parallels in the neural circuitry that can be interpreted in an interchangeable fashion.
