This year’s Brain Awareness Week (BAW) was another success with over 850 registered events worldwide (including 42 countries and 44 states)! We spoke with BAW partners from Korea, Israel, and the US, and went to the Rubin Museum of Art in NYC to learn more about perception with their Brainwave series. For those of you living in the NYC area, if you weren’t able to attend any local events, it’s not too late!
On Friday, March 31, the American Museum of Natural History is hosting a “Family Game Night” after hours, which will feature interactive games that challenge, entertain, and tease your brain. To purchase tickets, head over to their site.
On Thursday, April 13, the NYU Langone Medical Center is presenting a “Community Brain Fair” which is free and open to the public. Guests will learn about the brain from NYUneuroscientists and participate in hands-on activities. This includes seeing real brains, learning more about diseases of the brain, and hearing about cutting-edge research taking place at the NYU Langone Medical Center. In addition, a panel of experts from the Center for Cognitive Neurology will be discussing memory, brain health, and tips on keeping the brain young at the Successful Aging & Your Brain event. The Brain Fair and panel discussion will take place at the same location, so why not check out both?
We hope to see you there!
