What's Brain Awareness Week?
Brain Awareness Week
Brain Awareness Week is a global campaign to increase public awareness about the progress and benefits of brain research. Every March, Brain Awareness Week unites the efforts of universities, hospitals, patient groups, government agencies, schools, service organizations and professional associations worldwide in a week-long celebration of the brain!

Founded and coordinated by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives and European Dana Alliance for the Brain, Brain Awareness Week is celebrating its fifteenth anniversary campaign in 2010.

For more information about Brain Awareness Week, visit the Dana Foundation web site.

Your brain can do amazing things, but it can also fool you! Check out these brain tricks compiled by Posit Science.

For sports fans, we recently blogged about a cool illusion that offers some insight into why curve balls seem to break, as opposed to gradually curve.

Neuroscience for Kids
Neuroscience for Kids
One of our new favorite web sites is Dr. Eric Chudler's Neuroscience for Kids. There are great resources here for exploring the nervous system with kids, including lesson plans, experiments, and links to tons of other sites with brain resources.

It also has one of our favorite features: Nutrition and the Brain. We use it to try to get our own kids to eat something other than mac and cheese.

You can also sign up for Dr. Chudler's regular newsletter by sending him an email: chudler@u.washington.edu
