Stimulate your senses and get your brain tingling with a site all about your senses. You can't scratch and sniff the computer screen, but it'll get you noticing what a big deal your senses are in everything you do. Activate your sense of touch first. Get those fingertips on the keyboard and type in http://library.thinkquest.org/3750 for a sense-sational journey with your guide Mr. Potato Head. Tickle his nose and learn about the sense of smell; poke him in the eye and peek into the sense of sight. You'll discover why dirty socks smell worse than roses, and how your ears keep you steady when you're walking on a balance beam. Be sure to check out the tasty recipe that uses all your senses, too. This site is so very stimulating.

Do you think you could live on the moon? It's a
futuristic dream, but some day we might be rocketing suburbs into outer space! To help make this a reality, scientists are studying what happens to human bodies when in outer space. http://nsbri.tamu.edu/HumanPhys
Space is your launch pad to the bio-medical project site on humans in space. With cool futuristic video and great graphics, you'll become an expert on atmospheres, gravity and radiation. Physiology is more than just a bunch of somersaults in midair. Being in these inter-planetary places, actually makes astronauts look different. When they come back to Earth, their bones and muscles are affected, too.

Funny how sometimes we can remember a television show from five years ago but can't remember the punch line to the joke a friend told yesterday. Maybe this will help you remember: www.exploratorium.
edu/memory. The Memory Exhibit takes you deep in the brain and out into the corners of the world. Why not start with a little tour of a sheep's brain! This video dissection will be hard to forget. Once you've learned where memory is stored, check out Memory Solitaire and Droodles to get your noggin ticking. Can't remember where you put your homework? Then do a little homework at the Memory Exhibit and flex those brain muscles!
