2016 Brain Awareness Week

It’s all in your head. Everything you need to imagine, to ponder, to remember, to invent. The Virginia Tech community will be celebrating that notable three-pound contraption – the human brain – during Brain Awareness Week.

The official, international commemoration of Brain Awareness Week takes place from March 13 through March 19. As a part of Brain Awareness Week, the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute will host four lectures on the only organ to name itself.
