Area families and budding scientists should get a spark out of Brain Day, presented by Wayne State University School of Medicine neuroscientists from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 15 at the Michigan Science Center, 520 John R. St., Detroit.
Curious guests will get the chance to hold a human brain, pick a neuroscientist’s brain and learn some amazing brain facts in the process.
The event is free with paid general admission to the center, and coincides with the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives’ Brain Awareness Week March 10-16, a global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research.
WSU’s Brain Day highlights the neuroscience research at Wayne State through a variety of displays. Topics will include addiction, development and aging, and head safety.
