Associate Professor Amy Overman spoke on the set of WFMY News 2 on April 11, 2014, to answer a question posed by elementary school students during a "Kids Want To Know" segment of the news station's popular "2 Wants to Know" consumer advocacy and investigative program.

Overman, an expert on memory, aging, and the brain, is a founding member of Elon University's neuroscience program. She was invited onto the program by host Tanya Rivera and she uses a piece of wood, a plush hippopotamus and pipe cleaners to explain brain function, in addition to a model of the brain itself.
