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.

Check back soon for highlights from Brain Awareness Week in South America. If you just can’t wait, go over to the BAW International calendar for information about all the events. Keep an eye out for our Partner Reports, with more photos, as well.
