B.R.A.I.N. Day

Bringing Recognition And Interest to Neuroscience Day, or B.R.A.I.N. Day, is our annual celebration of Brain Awareness Week. Hosted by the Mind and Brain Society and the Undergraduate Program in Neuroscience, B.R.A.I.N. Day consists of a variety of interactive activities that demonstrate neuroscience principles and research techniques. The event brings together the Boston community and BU faculty, staff, and students from all disciplines to learn about something we all have in common – the fascinating human brain. Learn how to get involved and attend the next B.R.A.I.N. Day here!

The second annual B.R.A.I.N. Day took place on Sunday March 22nd in the Ziskind Lounge. Many thanks to all of our volunteers who worked hard to plan activities and make the event a success. Check out pictures from B.R.A.I.N. Day 2015!

Piece of Mind

Formerly InterAxon, Piece of Mind is our new community outreach program that connects BU undergraduates with local high school students. Our undergraduates teach neuroscience to local high school students through interactive presentations and activities. The group strives to spark enthusiasm for the brain, and science in general, by offering a unique exposure to the field. Piece of Mind is a great opportunity for undergraduates interested neuroscience, psychology, and other sciences to offer and apply their knowledge in a rewarding experience. Members will receive hands-on teaching experience helping to design their own presentations, create posters and props, and join BU’s larger mission to create a stronger bond to the Boston community.
