Celebrate Your Brain During Brain Awareness Week March 14-20

What do you know about your brain?


This week is Brain Awareness Week, and BYU’s Neuroscience Club  wants to help you  learn all about your brain, and touch some sheep brains.

Brain FHE

To kick off the week, all BYU Students and families are invited to attend a special Family Home Evening event. Come learn about your nervous system from Dr. Brown and Dr. Kirwan. They will provide presentations on neuro-anatomy, sensation, and perception that people of all ages can understand. Get there early because last time we ran out of seats!

When: Monday, March 14 @ 7pm

Where: SWKT 250

Impaired Basketball @ WILK Booth

Come to the WILK any day this week for lunch and shoot a basketball while wearing drunk goggles!

Good luck.

When: Monday-Friday: 11am-1pm

Where: WILK Terrace

Touch Sheep Brains!

That’s right. You heard us.


The Neuroscience club is asking for volunteers to help teach K-12 children across the valley about the brain throughout the week. To do so, they’ll be using sheep brains. Join them, and YOU’LL be using sheep brains.

You do NOT need any prior knowledge of the brain to participate – the club will teach you everything you need to know.  To volunteer, you can sign up on this google doc.
