Neurolab Team to Discuss Results, Potential Health Benefits

graphic directory with ten hot buttons outlined in text below

NeurOn (Neurolab Online) is a project that invites classrooms around the world to join NASA personnel as they prepare for the Neurolab mission, STS-90. NeurOn uses the Internet and Email to help break barriers between NASA and the classroom.

The Neurolab mission will conduct brain research to study neurological and behavioral changes in space. The NeurOn project focuses on the people of the project, their efforts, their successes, and their challenges, as revealed through informal biographies, journals, and Web chats. Hands-on activities will further help students to experience the mission in their classroom.

The Neurolab Online Web pages will include:
