Science Bulletins: Brain Control of the Grasping Hand
Many primates, notably humans, have fine motor skills that permit grasping and manipulation of small objects, essential adaptations for tool use. Curiously, the cebus is the only primate in the distantly related New World monkey group that also has a precision grip. A new study led by neuroscientists at the University of California--Davis mapped the brains of cebus monkeys to explore the signaling and evolution of the "grasping hand." The evidence suggests that the brain circuitry for a precisi

The Great Gravity Escape
Students use water balloons and a length of string to understand how gravity and the velocity of a spacecraft balance to form an orbit. They see that when the velocity becomes too great for gravity to hold onto an object, the object escapes the gravity of the sun or planet that it orbits.
Evaluating school classroom discussion
