Why Do We Get Brain Freeze? | SHE-ensya Why Series

Hello Science Fans!

Ice cream…
Slurpees…
Milk shakes…

Yum!!! And ouch!

In this episode of the SHE-ensya Why Series, we look at the science of brain freeze. We look at what’s happening inside our mouths and our brains that lead to that painful sensation. We also try to figure out how to stop it from happening. And finally, we look at how this uncomfortable event may actually be the key in understanding — and curing — migraines!

So if you want to enjoy your cold treats pain-free, please watch this video!

The SHE-ensya why series will dissect some of our most head scratching why questions, teasing out the scientific principles from historical records, conspiracy theories and mass media.

Thank you so much for dropping by!
