Brain Awareness Week (BAW) occurs each March and is an international campaign to highlight the benefits of brain research. This year BAW is March 10-16. This is a great time to educate yourself on all things brain. Organizers around the world offer lectures, activities, laboratory tours, workshops, exhibits, and more.
Visit Brain Awareness Week on the official BAW website, Facebook page, or on twitter @brainawareness and for an event near you. You can also check out the BAW page from the Society for Neuroscience for more information.
The Avielle Foundation will be holding a fundraiser to support brain health research on Thursday, March 13th at the Fainting Goat Pub in Denver, CO and presenting lectures on the Science of Violence in Tucson, AZ on Saturday, March 15th.
Brain Awareness Week: Meet with scientists, visit a lab or attend a lecture and learn about the brain or get involved by organizing an event yourself. Get connected!
