Guess what is coming soon? Brain Awareness Week (March 13-19). Created by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives, Brain Awareness Week is an international partnership of government agencies, scientific organizations, universities, and volunteer groups. It includes more than 1,850 partner organizations in 62 countries and many activities. The ultimate purpose of Brain Awareness Week is to make the public more aware of the benefits and promise of brain research. Here is the official web site, which includes brain games (remember blog #4!) and links to brain research news (remember blog #3!).
