Centre for Brain Research

Brain Week 2011


Over 3,000 members of the public attended Brain Day 2011 at the Auckland Business School. Visitors went on a giant mind map tour of the event to explore and experience the wonders of the brain!

The public open day on March 19th featured neuroscientists and clinicians from the Centre for Brain Research talking about the latest research updates, as well as community groups and science demonstrations. It was the biggest event of its kind in New Zealand.

Brain Day is part of international Brain Awareness Week, aiming to raise understanding of brain health and research. The open day is supported by the Neurological Foundation of New Zealand and over 30 different brain and sensory charities also championed the event with a community expo, offering help and advice to the public.
