Heads-up: as proud Brain Awareness Week Outreach Partners, we are happy to announce that Brain Awareness Week 2014 is taking place this week, March 10-16th. Spearheaded by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives every March, BAW unites the efforts of partner organizations worldwide in a celebration of the brain for people of all ages. Activities include open days at neuroscience labs; exhibitions about the brain; lectures on brain-related topics; social media campaigns; displays at libraries and community centers; classroom workshops; and more. SharpBrains will collaborate with activities around our books The SharpBrains Guide to Brain Fitness: How to Optimize Brain Health and Performance at Any Age and the just released Cómo invertir en su cerebro:Una guía SharpBrains para mejorar su mente y su vida (yes, our first book in Spanish!). Cheers to having a human brain!
