Product Description
In this activity, students construct “nerve density cards” that allow them to test different areas on the arm to compare the concentration of nerve cells. Areas on the skin that have few pain and pressure receptors (such as the back of the elbow) are not able to detect two pressure points at a larger minimum distance than areas on the skin that have more nerve cells.

Directions to make the nerve density cards and the procedure to run the activity are provided. The result table is included and can be a stand-alone assignment or can be incorporated into a student’s laboratory notebook. A grading rubric is also included.

This product is part of a Nervous System Bundle. You will save 20% on all nervous system activities listed below by purchasing that bundle.
