Brain Awareness Week 2014

We would like to thank graduate student Heather Minkel for once again organizing Brain Awareness Week!2012 1v2

Brain Awareness Week 2014 took place- March 24 -28 at the McWane Science Center.

UAB students, trainees and faculty at all levels helped bring the magic of neuroscience to the children of Birmingham.  

Courses included:

Sheep Brain Dissection:  Brain structure and function by dissection a sheep brain!

Brain Waves:  A fruit that makes sour things taste sweet?  A chemical only a few people can taste?  Our eyes adapt?  Come find the answers to these questions.

Illusion Confusion

Cow Eye Dissection: Eyes are part of the nervous system too!  Eye structure and function learned by dissecting a cow's eye!

Protect Your Brain:  Have you ever wondered why you have to wear a helmet while riding a bike?  Our "egg drop" demonstration will illustrate why wearing a helmet is so important!

Robo-Roach
