Product Details

The SpikerBox Kit comes with everything you need to get started learning neuroscience. You only need to supply time, curiosity, and an invertebrate (cricket, earthworm, or cockroach) which you can order from us or pick up in a local pet store. Once you have an invertebrate, follow your getting started guide and our online experiments, and soon you will be listening to the sweet beautiful sound of spikes and seeing them in real time on your mobile device or computer. Remember all of our software and experiments are free!
