Brain Awareness Week (BAW) - March 12-18, 2012

What is Brain Awareness Week?
Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is a "global campaign to increase public awareness about the progress and benefits of brain research." This week-long celebration of the brain occurs every March, and brings together organizations throughout the world. During Brain Awareness Week, partners organize activities to educate people of all ages about the brain and brain research. As the official website describes: "Events are limited only by the organizers’ imaginations. Examples include open days at neuroscience laboratories; museum exhibitions about the brain; lectures on brain-related topics; displays at malls, libraries, and community centers; and classroom workshops."
