Mark your diaries now for the annual Brain Awareness Week, which will be holding events from 11 - 17 March at the Otago Museum. The week is part of a global effort to increase public awareness about the progress and benefits of brain research, and to increase awareness of the potential for improving long-term health of the brain through lifestyle changes and risk-reduction strategies.
Alongside the Neurological Foundation of New Zealand and the Otago Museum, the event is supported by the University of Otago's Brain Health Research Centre, Brain Research New Zealand, and Collaboration for Aging Research Excellence CARE. Speakers will be from all three organisations, and cover a wide variety of talks from the life history of your brain, to new advancements in neurological treatments, to maximising learning, and taking responsibility for your aging brain.
