Not Just Neurons – Brain Cell Types (BETA)

What’s Your Mind Made of?

A Brain Cell Types Flash Game


Your mind is amazing- it lets you read, talk, move and breathe! How does that work?  

Brain cells do the work!  But what is a brain cell? What’s your mind made of?

Introducing Not Just Neurons: A web game to teach you what brain cells are, and what they do.  Your brain is so much more than a tangled mess of wires.  It’s a vast network of interconnected cells, held together by unsung heroes.  Play for free below!

This game is in beta stage!  Pardon our dust!
