Brain Awareness Week, 2010 @ SfN San Diego

The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) meeting will be held in San Diego this year.  This year's meeting promises to be an excellent platform for Neuroscientists from multiple disciplines to share knowledge about their research, gain feedback, as well as discover novel ideas. The SfN meeting will also act as a social venue for networking amongst fellow scientists.

As in previous years, the SfN is promoting several public outreach programs including Brain Awareness Week (BAW).  BAW is an international campaign to increase public awareness about the importance of neuroscience research.  Every Spring, universities, elementary/secondary schools, hospitals, professional associations, government agencies and service organizations work together to organize a variety of events during BAW to celebrate neuroscience research.  This year is extra special since we are celebrating BAW's fifteenth anniversary!

Several creative and exciting activities are featured during BAW to introduce people of all ages to the brain and its research.  BAW events include open houses at research institutions, scientific cafes to engage the local community, workshops at elementary and high schools and much more!

For more information about BAW or to find out how you can get involved in your local area, please attend a BAW poster presentation at SfN, San Diego 2010! Bring your colleagues as well!
