Brain Awareness Week: March 10-16
Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is a global campaign to increase public awareness about the progress and benefits of brain research.
As a Center that studies the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), brain health is always on our minds at HIPRC.
- Got a brain question? The folks at UW Neurobiology & Behavior Community Outreach are standing by to answer it!
- Attend one of the hundreds of BAW events this week to learn more about the brain and brain research.
- Exercise your mind with brain games, puzzles, and activities.
