It's Brain Awareness Week - Do You Know What Your Brain Is Doing Right Now?

The DANA Foundation has supplied a whole mess of resources for Brain Awareness Week - enjoy! [Hint: There is fun stuff for kids, too, or maybe even especially.]

By the way, when you read the title of this post, where was your brain, where was your mind, what were they up to as you read the title? Was your brain reading the words but your mind wandering off someplace more interesting?

Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is the global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research.

Every March, BAW unites the efforts of partner organizations worldwide in a celebration of the brain for people of all ages. Events are limited only by the organizers’ imaginations and include open days at neuroscience labs; exhibitions about the brain; lectures on brain-related topics; displays at libraries and community centers; classroom workshops; and more.
