  Brain Awareness Week Recap, 2011

MCW and the Neuroscience Research Center hosted the Milwaukee Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience on March 15, 2011, for a Brain Awareness Week event entitled "YOUR BRAIN: The Facts Behind the Headlines." The evening consisted of graduate student booths with presentations and hands-on demonstrations of neuroscience topics as well as three talks by MCW neuroscientists on newsworthy topics.
