Making Physiology Happen


Brain Bypass Lab

Brain Bypass Experiment: In this lab, you will demonstrate the capability of one person to control the movements of another. Here’s how it works:

  • A stimulator is used on the iWorx IX-TA control module to create the interface between Person A and B.
  • Person A (the “controller”) squeezes a ball that signals the interface (IX-TA) to fire an electrical current off to Person B.
  • Person B holds a hand dynamometer.
  • When Person A squeezes the ball, the current is received by muscles in the hand of Person B, and the hand twitches totally outside of their own control.

This lab is easy to perform and fun for students to test various hypotheses – and another reason why 78 of the top 100 colleges and universities in the U.S. use iWorx physiology lab equipment.
