I always laugh at all the obscure "national weeks," but this one I'm all in favor of...
It's national Brain Awareness Week March 13-19, so start baking cookies...and get out the party hats.
Created by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives, Brain Awareness Week is an international partnership of government agencies, scientific organizations, universities, and volunteer groups. It includes more than 1,850 partner organizations in 62 countries and many activities.
The ultimate purpose of Brain Awareness Week is to make the public more aware of the benefits and promise of brain research. Here is the official web site, which includes brain games and links to brain research news.
