Episode 2: Fish, Mice, and Zombies

BY REID GUDGER & CHRIS KNOLLMAN

Tetrodotoxin (TTX) is a potent neurotoxin found in fish and other aquatic animals. Popular culture would have you believe that TTX could be used to simulate death, even create zombies, but is this science fiction or fact? UNC Asheville seniors Reid and Chris investigate!

This episode was produced as part of an upper level course on Neuropharmacology taught by Angel Kaur during Fall 2018 at UNC Asheville.
