Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

Durham middle school students got an insider’s perspective on the brain and how it works this week, thanks to a series of visits from the Duke Neurology Department. As part of their second annual Brain Awareness Week event, Duke Neurology residents and physician assistants led discussions at seven schools throughout Durham. This year’s discussions focused on epilepsy and seizures, from what happens inside the brain during a seizure, to how to spot a seizure and what they can do to help. more info: https://neurology.duke.edu/about/news/sharing-love-brain-again-duke-neurology-residents-make-second-visit-durham-middle-schools
