Brain Awareness Week took place in every corner of the world in 2015. Here’s what happened in Australia and the Pacific Islands.
Australia and New Zealand continue to be the only nations hosting Brain Awareness Week events in the Pacific Island region. In Australia the Wellcome Trust hosted a four week, online event for teachers interested in engaging with and learning about the brain from psychologists and neuroscientists. The University of Auckland and Neurological Foundation of New Zealand opened up its laboratory and clinic to the public with presentations from the nation’s leading neuroscientists and clinicians.
