2017 Brain School
It’s all in your head. Everything you need to imagine, to ponder, to remember, to invent. The Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute will be celebrating that notable three-pound lump of tissue – the human brain – with its sixth annual Brain School, a highlight of the institute’s commemoration of Brain Awareness Week. This year's program will focus on how outside factors, from drugs to bugs to digital devices, influence the brain.
The school will run three evenings: March 13, 14, and 15. Each panel will begin at 6 p.m. and last approximately an hour. A reception will precede the event at 5:30 p.m.
Free parking is available in the nearby parking garage.
Brain School 2018 is part of the institute’s commemoration of Brain Awareness Week.
