Brain Day 2016 - Your Amazing Brain: an interactive expo

Brain Day is an exciting public open day revealing the mysteries of the brain. Organised by the Centre for Brain Research and the Neurological Foundation of New Zealand.

Brain Day is part of Brain Awareness Week, an annual international campaign initiated by the Dana Foundation of New York, to raise public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research. In New Zealand, the Neurological Foundation has been supporting this event for 11 years!

This fun, engaging and informative day of neuroscience includes a full-to-bursting programme of brain research findings and brain health workshops, discussion groups and talks, engagement activities with community groups, interactive research labs and fun activities for all ages – including science experiments for children and adults.
