This week is Brain Awareness Week! It is a campaign to increase “public awareness about the progress and benefits of brain research.”  While I don’t know when this week started, I love the idea.  So much of what I learned over 30 years ago in college has changed due to research efforts. I encourage you to take some time this week to learn something new about this important piece of matter that resides between your ears. Here is a video that describes the brain and is set to music.  I hope it inspires you to learn more.  Please share your insights in the comments!
