Multidisciplinary Education—Bridging Physics to Life Sciences In Introductory College Labs

Wathiq Abdul-Razzaq


A simple circuit that produces a voltage pulse analogous to the pulse generated in the neuron was developed. This circuit is suitable for an introductory physics lab experiment to improve students understanding of applications to real life. By including a simple description of how neurons send electrical signals, a direct connection is made between physics and the human body. This is especially relevant to students pursuing careers in biology, medicine, and other pre-health areas, but also important to any student who is curious about the role physics plays outside of the lab.
