The Spine-Tingling Conclusion of Geo’s Adventure in the Human Body!

Survive! Inside the Human Body, Vol. 3 concludes our incredible tour of the human body with a wild ride through the nervous system. When Geo and Dr. Brain find themselves inside Phoebe’s brain, they must brave shocking electrical signals and navigate a maze of neurons and synapses.

Will the dynamic duo finally escape? And what’s the matter with Phoebe, anyway? As you follow this up-close exploration of Phoebe’s brain, you’ll learn how the brain and nervous system work.

Have you ever wondered...

  • How your body protects your brain?
  • Why your leg “falls asleep” when you sit in one position for too long?
  • How CT scans, MRIs, EEGs, and PET scans work?
  • Why humans have such big cerebrums compared to other animals?
  • What your spinal cord and brain stem do?
  • What kinds of new techniques doctors invent to diagnose and treat their patients?

For ages 8+
