Brain Awareness Events At Several Locations March 12-23

Are you aware of your brain? Here's a program for all you brainiacs!

Washoe County Library System is please to host members of the Sierra Nevada Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience for an upcoming free program entitled "Brain Awareness".  They will present a short, engaging, hands-on presentation  on the brain and will bring in real human brains, as well as plasticized sections, mouse brains, fly brains, diagrams, and other activities. 

The Sierra Nevada Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience (SNCSfN) was formed in 2008 by neuroscientists in Nevada. Their interest is to advance the understanding of nervous system and to promote education in the neurosciences.  This partnership program was graciously provided in part by Washoe County, Washoe County Library System, Sierra Nevada Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience, University of Nevada Reno-School of Medicine, and the Society for Neuroscience.
