Brain Awareness Day

Now in its tenth year, Brain Awareness Day is held each spring. Members of the University of Illinois neuroscience community work together to.educate the community, give the public a chance to "look into their brains", and help them to learn about brain research. The main attractions are the exhibits -- educational, interactive, and fun!

All ages are welcome to attend.

Some exciting past exhibits have included "Brain Passport" (Diana Thomas), "Food for Thought" (Beverly Lab) and "The Invincible Invertebrate" (Claire Miller, Joel Stary).
