New from TED-Ed: Greg Gage and the cockroach beatbox

Posted by:


Throughout today and tomorrow, we’ll be sharing incredible video from our new TED-Ed channel.

By dissecting a cockroach … yes, live on stage … TED Fellow and neuroscientist Greg Gage shows how brains receive and deliver electric impulses — and how legs can respond to stimulation via sound. Length: 6:16.

This video is part of a TED-Ed series called Awesome Nature. Find other series on the TED-Ed channel on YouTube:
