Experiment - The Nature of the Nerve Impulse
This programme examines part of the nervous system of a locust.
"A large female locust is chilled in a refrigerator so that its activity is slowed down but it isn't killed.
A mount is prepared and the locust is stuck down using melted bees wax.
Its legs are removed before it's put into position. A piece of sellotape helps secure the locust and pieces of wax
are melted onto its neck whilst holding the head back. Now we're ready to begin the dissection."
Write that down!
More pointy pencils and a man without a beard this time holding down a poor leggless and defenceless locust
whilst carrying out this 'useful' experiment.
