Assistant Professor of Neurology at Yale University Chris Gottschalk, MD, FAHS visits CELC Middle School to teach about the brain and nervous system as part of CELC’s study of the human body.  Dr. Gottschalk answered student questions on topics ranging from the parts and function of the brain to new research on causes of migraines.  Students simulated how neurons make connections.  The human brain has as many neurons as there are stars in Earth’s universe – about 100 billion!  A truly captivating educational experience for all – much gratitude to Dr. Gottschalk for expanding student learning in such a meaningful way.
