In-class assignment 3

Figure out how we might listen for neurons!

This is a fun activity to help you use what you've learned about neurons in the way you will need to for this class. Specifically, next week we will talk about the methods researchers use to listen for neurons: to figure out which brain areas are active, which are connected to each other, and precisely when neurons fire.
