Do your holiday shopping at SfN!

Word has it that there is a poster at SfN submitted by "Backyard Brains" that describes a product they've designed which allows laypeople to experience the world of electrophysiology using common household pests like cockroaches and crickets. The kit comes complete with neural probes, an amplifier, and a built-in speaker so you can actually hear the neuronal spikes. Connect it to your iPhone and you have a one of a kind, do it yourself lab right in your garage!

These kits make good Christmas presents for those relatives who are constantly asking exactly what it is you do all day. Spend some quality time with your loved ones and let them get to know you better with these brain-recording kits. It's fun for the whole family!

Next up might be a do-it-yourself R01 kit from NIH ... one can always hope.
