Find out how worms can help us to understand ageing and how we sense pain, by using our online videos, games and activities, together with a printout booklet to help you follow along and learn. Match mutants to their names, play our sweet-finding board game or ask a question. You’ll be amazed what a tiny worm can tell us about how our brains work!

Scientists use model organisms, such as C. elegans worms to better understand processes in humans. Amazingly, these worms can teach us about our senses and the ageing process.

Worms sense through a range of senses that help our understanding of how human brains work too.

Use our videos and online activities to learn about these worms. Sometimes genetic changes happen that create mutant worms with special characteristics. Can you identify these? You can even ask our scientists questions online.

You’ll be amazed what a tiny worm can tell us about how our brains work!
