Brain Awareness Week 2018 in Photos

Three months ago, Brain Awareness Week was celebrated by thousands of people in 43 countries. Activities engaged kids, adults, and seniors in lessons about the brain and its importance in our everyday lives—sometimes through a straightforward talk or a lab tour, and other times through creative endeavors such as a concert or a movie screening.

We collect images of these events from around the world for our Brain Awareness Week Photo Gallery, and today we offer a glimpse into the 2018 campaign through these photos.
