Treasure Hunt #6

Treasure -- Treasure -- Treasure

Do I have your attention now? Here is a contest, a game, a challenge.

Your job is to find the answers to 10 questions related to the brain and nervous system. All of the answers can be found right here on the pages of "Neuroscience for Kids." Send me an e-mail ( when you have found all of the answers.

It's easy! If you send me the correct answers to all of the questions, you will win the Golden Neuron Award.

"What is the Golden Neuron Award?," you ask? It is NOT fame, fortune and a new car. The Golden Neuron Award is recognition on a SPECIAL PAGE.

Treasure hunt #6 is CLOSED. Please try Treasure hunt #7.

[email] Send your answers to me (Dr. Eric H. Chudler) at Include whatever information about yourself that you want posted on this page (name, grade, school, age). If you don't want your name posted, just say so.

Winners with the correct answers will be listed on the GOLDEN NEURON AWARD PAGE.
