Brain Awareness Week to bring cutting-edge research to the public

In celebration of International Brain Awareness Week March 12–16, CU Boulder will offer a series of public lectures by expert faculty, revealing new insights on everything from how to preserve cognitive function later in life to how the adolescent brain is unique to how cannabis use impacts the brain.

“Everyone wants to know how to help their brains grow better, stay healthy and function optimally throughout life,” said Nicole Speer, director of the Intermountain Neuroimaging Consortium (INC). “Current neuroscience research is telling us how we can achieve these goals, but that research sometimes takes decades to make it into public awareness. Brain Awareness Week gives us the opportunity to bring this knowledge directly to the public.”

What: Brain Awareness Week
When: Monday, March 12, to Friday, March 16
