Engaging the Next Generation of Neuroscientists

A major part of the Dana Foundation’s Brain Awareness Week campaign is to engage young students in activities and discussions about the brain. To aid in this endeavor, Dana publishes a few brainy booklets specifically geared toward kids – some of which are offered in multiple languages, as well as games and puzzles. We’re always keen to find new kid-friendly brain resources to add to our Brainy Kids section, and the other day my colleague found a cool new brain resource from the Wellcome Trust in London. The glossy publication offers students and teachers an overview of what imaging research has taught us about the brain, addressing different types of imaging, neuro-myths, and reflections from doctors and patients on the role their brains play in their lives. Check it out!
