Dr. David Gardiner was featured on Brains On! — a science podcast for kids from Minnesota Public Radio News and Southern California Public Radio. “Alexander, 11 years old kid, question how axolotls can regrow their limbs.” On the topic of regeneration, kids and many adults tend to gear towards an idea similar to Wolverine’s ability to regenerate limbs.

Dr. Gardiner explains the science behind regeneration in an interesting way, yet simple enough for kids to understand.
