The Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is an international campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of current brain research, ranging from microscopical cells to complex psychiatric disorders.
Every March, the BAW celebrates the brain with people of all ages. For this occasion, many institutions organize various worldwide events, all focused around the fascinating facets of brain research.
This year’s Brain Awareness Week in Berlin will take place from March 11-17. The event is jointly organized by the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin, the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin, the Center for Stroke Research Berlin, Cluster of Excellence NeuroCure and the Schering Stiftung. During the week of activities, participating scientific institutions in Berlin will present a varied program, including lectures, workshops, and exhibitions for all ages. Whether you take a virtual journey exploring the phases of a bipolar disorder, or attend a workshop regarding shitty feelings –it’s up to you!
Workshops explaining how the brain works are also offered for the younger scientists. More information about the program is available at http://www.baw-berlin.de/index.html
Brain Awareness Week Berlin is financially supported by the DANA Foundation and the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS).
