Science of Zombies Exhibit


The Science of Zombies:Digging up Truth about the Undead discusses contemporary examples and explanations of
“zombification” and what the future may hold! This traveling exhibit, developed by the Medical Library at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine, focuses on real-life examples of zombification in nature. From the neurotoxin-laced potions of Haitian Voodoo sorcerers, to the parasitic zombie-makers of the insect world, some of the surprising truths about the "undead" are explained.
