Is your electrophysiology burning a hole in your pocket? Did you have to wait until graduate school to actually study the brain? That's so sad! But, have no fear, Backyard Brains presents the open-source SpikerBox, allowing you to hear and record brain signals of insects for less than $100. No Ph.D. required!

Cockroaches or Crickets, we don't discriminate. We'll also present a few exciting new prototypes...from DIYBio to DIYNeuro.

Backyard Brains: Because the Brain is not magic.

Added bonus: Are you a P.I. or department head of a neuroscience group? Are you tiring of all the students banging down your door who say they want to study the brain? Don't worry! Hand them a SpikerBox and see if they come back. If they do, they're golden! If not, it was never meant to be! We just saved you years of H.R. issues.

Tim Marzullo received his B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of Texas at Austin in 2001 and his Ph.D. in Neuroscience in 2008 working with Daryl Kipke studying cortical neurophysiology for neuroprosthetics. He then worked as a research engineer for a year at NeuroNexus Technologies, developing advanced neural interfaces for researchers around the world.

He is currently a Kauffman Postdoctoral Entrepreneurial Fellow, boot-strapping “Backyard Brains,” a start-up devoted to producing low-cost neurophysiology equipment for high school students and early undergraduates, bringing neuroscience to everyone and a spike in every hand.

He enjoys his newly married life and fixing his old beater cars.
