Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

The AmeriBrain - The world's most realistic walk through brain was exhibited on the campus of Southern Adventist University to educate university students and local elementary school students and their families of the importance of caring for the brain and brain research. The guided walk-through exhibit featured areas of the brain involved in movement, hearing, touch, and personality. Highlighted information included, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases, concussion, brain blood flow, aneurysm, epilepsy, Meningitis, headaches, ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes. Attendees expressed appreciation for the opportunity to tour the brain and many asked if we were planning to bring the exhibit back next year.
