About This Event
The FAU Brain Institute is proud to announce “Brainy Days 2020,” a celebration of neuroscience throughout the month of March sponsored by Palm Health Foundation. From understanding autism, addiction and Alzheimer’s disease to exploring how the brain processes violent behavior, researchers hope to engage, empower and educate the public on brain diseases, promote brain wellness and ultimately reduce the stigma associated with brain disorders.
“The ‘Brainy Days’ program, which runs throughout the month of March, represents a wonderful opportunity for Brain Institute scientists and their trainees to move out of the laboratory and connect with members of our community, young and old, concerning the promise and progress of brainresearch and medicine,” said Randy D. Blakely, Ph.D., executive director of FAU’s Brain Institute and a professor of biomedical science in FAU’sSchmidt College of Medicine. “Our activities range from hands-on science experiences with kids at the South Florida Science Center & Aquarium in the shadow of the new permanent exhibit Journey through the Human Brain to health-oriented lectures for adults, and everything connected with brain science, in between. Neuroscience is a constantly evolving field, where advances in technologies and brain health research are arising every day. We have a lot of fascinating stories to tell, and excitement to pass along to the next generation.”
