Brain Awareness Week 2005

This week of March 14 – 20 is Brain Awareness Week. This is the 10th Anniversary in North America. It’s an initiative of the Dana Organization and you can find more about their activities at their website.

The Site for Brain News serves as a gateway to brain information. Visit the Brain Information and BrainWeb section to find general information about the brain and current brain research, and to link to validated sites related to more than 25 brain disorders. Brainy Kids Online offers children, parents, and teachers a site with activities for younger children, puzzles, links to excellent educational resources, and lesson plan suggestions. Brain Resources for Seniors provides older adults with links to sites related to brain health, education, and general information.

Another useful site on Brain related activities is the BrainWareMap. I must declare an interest since this is a non-profit site developed by my brother. Nevertheless I think it’s an incredible resource on all aspects of thinking and the brain.

So expand your horizons this week. Let your mind wander a little.
