Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

We had the students in the Biopsychology course develop brief demonstrations to illustrate psychological phenomenon. The students set up their demonstrations in the dinning hall during lunch and dinner on tables normally used for presentations or activity sign-ups. As peers stopped by, the Biopsychology students presented their demonstrations and explained the background information. Students participating in the demonstrations were given brain erasers, pencils or pins.Students enjoyed the demonstrations and learned more about neuroscience.
